This plant is very delicate, specially when you water it. I like to water it from the bottom and give as much balance with sunlight and shade. Very Lovely plant.

I’ve heard many complaints about this plant but I stuck it in the corner of a kitchen window, practically neglect it and she’s super happy. She’s a no-fuss plant and absolutely beautiful.

I love the hot pink streaks. It’s also pretty chill, doesn’t ask for much.
