Tolmiea Menzies - Piggyback Plant
Out of Stock
Select Store
Item code:

The piggyback plant is a notoriously easy to care for houseplant. A novel feature of the piggyback plant is its means of propagation.  Piggybacks develop buds at the base of each leaf where it meets the leaf stalk. New plants develop a piggyback style off the parent leaf, forcing it to bend under the weight and touch the ground. The new piggyback will then develop roots and become a new separate plant.
