    This is a gorgeous plant, very easy and happy so far. The flowers are adorable, and it’s been flowering consistently since it arrived. Packaged beautifully, very large plant

    My mother has had one of these plants, since I was a child, over 40 years ago, growing up in South Africa. As children, we used to love rubbing the leaves gently as it has such a tactile furry feel. My mom has given away little baby plants to many friends over the years and I carried one overseas with me which nearly died and is now thriving. Her plant is large and thriving. This magnificent house plant is very easy to grow and look after and it’s little purple flowers are a pretty surprise. I have struggled for a long time to identify it and am so thankful that I found it on Pinterest!!
