super Dwarf Butterfly Plant Review by Diane23
I love this plant. I was worried it would not grow for me because this is my first vivarium. It is growing wonderfully. I love that it is a compact plant and will not over power my vivarium. (Posted on 4/10/2018)

Awesome Teeny Little Plant!! Review by Swish
This plant is so pretty! I am very hopeful it will thrive in my little Viv/Pali. The packaging as usual from JF was amazingly good. I can see some small signs of stress from the plant from MY handling of it while I got it unpacked and situated in it's new home. But the plant arrived PERFECT. But the transfer is hard on almost every plant.. but I am completely satisfied with the high quality, wonderful careful shipping, and size of my specimen! (Posted on 5/18/2017)
