Plant Description: This is a nice and large variegated Opalina. There's nothing wrong with her form in terms of stretching, but some of her leaves are more flat and some of the ones towards her center curve up and it's an awkward side profile. Graptoveria is very reactive and moves towards the direction of the light. When they are searching for light they can lay down their leaves to give a broader surface for light absorption, when lighting is better these leaves can shift back upright more to minimize surface area. As she traveled she felt the change of lighting conditions and reacted to it by increasing her surface area.
No worries if this one is a pass, I cannot guarantee she'll turn these leaves back up, but I think she will as she settles in. If you want to give her a try and she doesn't return to a more perfect shape we'd be happy to take her back.
She is a very large Opalina and she has shipped well, except for the side profile. She's measuring in at about 6" across. We've had her for about two weeks and she's already starting to return to a more normal shape, but we do have her slightly marked down from where she would normally retail (for a variegated Opalina of her size), just because of the form.
She is stem only. Leaves are well attached, but they are always delicate in Graptoveria.
