First purchase!

I got this Tradescantia Nanouk as part of my first purchase from this shop and I’m so happy with it! This plant is stunning and I love the purple leaves so much. I can’t wait to care for this plant and see more of those beautiful purple leaves grow. It was packaged carefully and arrived in great condition! I will definitely be purchasing from this shop again!
