Water a ton, mine dried out but even then I can use the leaves. Lovely and easy to revive. The branches can grow like vines if you change the sunlight direction.

Their lovely and make great tea. They do like a LOT of sunlight and when planting them indoors they can have a hard time growing but it’s not detrimental to their growth.
