Hi there-

I just got this little guy at a greenhouse under "house plants." Just too cute to pass up.

Im thinking it's an earth Star or some kind of snake plant?

Any help would be appreciated! Smiling

I think you will be correct. It looks like some variety of Cryptanthus to me.

Looks like a Cryptanthus to me too.
I have found that coffee, tea, and rose can all agree on one thing... water everyday.

Here she is in her little owl planter! Too cute to pass up! It'll be a great size for her for about 6 months but she'll definitely outgrow it!
