This is my first plant, like ever. It was recommended by the guy at the nursery. I recommend doing your own research before getting a little gal like this. Lily is definitely cute, but can be hard to take care of. She needs up to 6 hours of sunlight, only water every 5 days, and she can easily brown or die if left in the sun for so long.
