    I am trying to locate some nice Bolivian Jew (Turtle Vine) like you have pictured on your website. What you have pictured is much greener than other Bolivian Jew I’ve seen. Since I can’t seem to find Bolivian Jew this green and “succulent like” in my area, can you sell some to me and ship it to me?


    • Gerald,
      It may look greener because new growth on this plant is very green and healthy looking. It should get that purple color you’re looking for with some time.

  • Gerald, where do you live? I grow tons of this in Florida. I think the photo shows a greener Jew because the description is to grow it in the shade, but I grow mine in direct, noontime sun and it is very healthy and much darker in color.

  • Stephanie Dees:

    My grandma used to have this plant. I would love to have a small cutting.

    I am not sure if we have any of these left. If you live close by, give our Garden Center a call at 479-410-2217 and they might be able to help you out.

    If you don’t live nearby, I suggest contacting a local garden center to see if they have any available.

    Good luck with your search. Bolivian Jew plants are very common and easy to grow. You should be able to find some. Please let us know if you have any questions.
