Oh, yes, do, Becca!

I bought a bunch of them and each one is better than I expected and better than in the photos, absolutely gorgeous in person.

You'll love them.

Wonderful! Is this your project plant?

I'm trying to resist the temptation of ordering these pots but...now I'm not so sure!

I can't decide just yet!

I'd like to use one of mine that is in bud. . .but Jasper (orange tabby) just bonked off two of the buds, on one of the Neos. lol

And I have more pots on the way. . .so not sure what to do, what to do, what to do. . .still playing.
