This little guy showed up tightly packed, and when I unwrapped him he was so thankful. I've since watered him and placed him in a north/east facing window and he's fluffed up quite a bit. I'm always excited to see how well they do inside in the south! I bought this one named after my late uncle freddie, who also had a green thumb. The plants all seem healthy and none have died yet due to my overwatering!!
