A pot of slight proportion, the Geraldine is tawny terra cotta with a prominent banded rim. Inside sits the Jade, the tortoise of houseplants – relaxed, long-lived, and low maintenance. Oh so small to start … but slow and steady wins the race. The moral of this story? Don’t underestimate the Geraldine.
Unassuming, but alluring. That’s the Geraldine. Its charming terra cotta tone is enhanced by polished river rocks of white and the jewel-green pop of the Jade’s plump leaves. This upright, tree-like succulent’s growth may be very gradual, but its demand for water is small. Even if you nap on your care rituals, the Geraldine’s determined occupant will likely crawl on. After all, Aesop’s fable stands the test of time. The hare never stood a chance.
