Plant arrived in in Feb 2020 in great condition with soil still damp. Will plant this into a pot after 1-2 weeks outside and provide updates.

May 2020 - has put on no new growth since purchase thus far. We will see how it copes with winter in Toowoomba - may have to bring it inside on cool nights.
