The first plant the was delivered was not viable and soon died; a replacement was sent and that one was clearly a recent cutting that was extremely small and not at all robust. I tried my best to nurture it but it was just too small and weak and I threw it on the compost heap yesterday... it never produced a real set of leaves!
