Bonne reprise, croissance lente

Reçu en quelques jours, beau plant.
Reste plus qu'à laisser grandir!

Goût des feuilles très original

La plante champignon peu ordinaire m'intriguait, j'ai donc décidé d'en commander une qui m'a été livré en quelques jours.
Les feuilles du Rungia ont un goût subtile de champignon de paris.
Je la recommande.
