This is my highest performer by far. Less than a foot away from a west facing window and gets filtered direct sun for most of the day. About a foot away from a humidifier. I’ve had this for maybe 6 months and I’ve chopped it several times because it likes to spread out. Very rewarding plant. Cuttings root easily in water.
