How to care for Beefsteak
Beefsteak needs 0.5 cups of water every 9 when it doesn’t get direct sunlight and is potted in a 5" pot.

Beefsteak love being close to bright, sunny windows 😎.
Place it less than 1ft from a south-facing window to maximize the potential for growth.
Beefsteak does not tolerate low-light 🚫.

Most potting soils come with ample nutrients which plants use to produce new growth.
By the time your plant has depleted the nutrients in its soil it’s likely grown enough to need a larger pot anyway.
To replenish this plant's nutrients, repot your Beefsteak after it doubles in size or once a year—whichever comes first.
What other plant parents say
it can get a little stringy but super easy to snip off parts and propagate in water with some direct sun and make it full again. I often forget to water it for well over a week, it looks dead, and then with a heavy watering, you can watch it rise back to life.
