    Lobster claw

    I have it planted, of course it does not look like the picture above but it is coming along. Got my fingers crossed that it will bloom at some point.

    Lobster Claw Plant

    I bought this plant for my sister. I was in Puerto Rico last month, and came across this beauty of a plant. My sister fell in love with it. She received it. The soil was still moist- there were 6 leaves the were brown. I guess she has to wait until the lobster claws grow. Can’t recommend until the claws grow in n- right now it’s just a tall plant / tree with a few leaves. But I can say that if the tree/ plant bears a flower she’ll post on your website if that permissible. She’s following all the instructions to make sure that it grows in healthy. Keeping our fingers crossed. Will get back to you as soon as the tree bears a flower.
