These particular specimens have exhibited really impressive survival
ability. They arrived dehydrated and hopelessly shriveled, having spent
something like 6 weeks in the mail. After a week of being suspended above
surface of water in a jar to rehydrate them in 100% humidity, they got
potted, and about 4 months later, the big one decided to wake up. Its smaller
siblings followed about a month later.
The leaf of A. paeonifolius is quite similar to some forms of A.prainii.
Spider mites and aphids seem to leave this species alone.
