China Doll Plant


Category: Tag:


Hi!! I’m the China Doll Plant. I may look like a dainty houseplant now, but I am actually a fast-growing and beautiful tree. But don’t worry, I stay smaller when potted indoors. I’m very delicate, physically and mentally. My soft, glossy leaves make the perfect statement in your home. I like things to go the way I plan and I don’t like change, so I need someone who can be by my idea and help meet my needs.
