What other plant parents say
the leaves on this bad boy are a really pretty deep green and i love it they’re also pretty soft to touch, i can not water my plant for like a week past when i should and it’s still alive and as hearty as ever. if it doesn’t get enough sun or enough water however it’s leaves will turn crunchy which isn’t the best thing in the world.
