Blue Chalksticks needs 0.5 cups of water every 12 when it doesn’t get direct sunlight and is potted in a 5" pot.

Blue Chalksticks may have difficulty thriving, and will drop leaves 🍃, without ample sunlight.
Place it less than 3 feet from a south-facing window to maximize the potential for growth.
Select your region to see how the current weather in your area affects the placement of Blue Chalksticks in your home 🏡.
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 Blue Chalksticks after it doubles in size or once a year—whichever comes first.
What other plant parents say
This is a cutting from a larger plant I used to own, sadly it died from a mealybug infestation but this cutting thrived! It grew roots very quickly and seems to be bigger every time I look at it. It likes sunlight, and mine sits on a northwest-facing windowsill.
