I love my Sushi plant.

I’ve wanted one of these since I first saw one in a video taken in Japan. I haven’t seen it for sale anywhere else, especially locally it’s nowhere to be found. It’s such a cool looking plant. Kinda reminds me of sushi for some reason. Almost like it’s wrapped in seaweed or something. It arrived safely with minimal damage from the top layer of rocks rubbing the sides slightly at the bottom. Nothing to be concerned with and to be expected shipping half way across the country. I am now trying to decide which one to order next. I may get another one of these as well. Cannot wait to see how this one grows over time.
