I placed four of them into this wooden house-like piece I found at home.
While the fifth plant landed on top of our fridge to complement the wooden fish behind it.
These mini-plants are soil-less and are easy to maintain. No need to neither wash any jelly nor replace anything. The routine is just to water them 2-3 times a week. Their main purpose is for indoor use and sunlight is not recommended at all. So far, they are green and alive. I really hope that they will last for long.
I’m done with the house mini-plants for now, (I’m still itching to get a maxi plant for one corner of the house and that’s more costly). And my quest won’t be over yet until I got my mini-plant/s for my office cube. Also, I plan to give one of these to five of my “girl” friends as Christmas present and I hope they’ll like it (sshhhh…).
Already found these for my office cube. Just loving it! :-)
Update 2 (Mar 8, 2010)
I already got 10 mini plants... but 4 of them dried up already. First one is the plant in the white pot (like alovera), probably due to overwatering. Second is the plant in the orange-black pot (with red & green leaves), it requires more water than the rest and probably dried up due to lack of bright indirect light. Third & fourth is the plant in the pink pot, I have two of these, one in the office and the other one at home. The one in the office dried due to overwatering, but the one I had at home, I simply don't know. I am sure I didn't overwater and that there was enough light.
I observed that the plants grow better in the office due to the consistent bright indirect light and cold temperature. This goes true with my money plants that I setup in the office and at home. Now, even if I am tempted to try other plants at home, I think

It's been a month already since the last miura plant at home finally gave up. Thus, the next time I passed by the store, I decided to get a new plant and found this cutie...
