Gotta keep close to an open window. Does well if u keep up with watering. Browns pretty easily but not very muck only along the edges. Wavy leaves are very easy to get. Can be a little dramatic at times but does well without too much effort.

I was given this plant when I purchased another plant online, and it seems to be growing decent, but I killed one of its babies somehow. Now its growing another one, so it’s got that going for it. Needs a wider pot so it can spread. I had it in a 2 inch pot. Switched to 6 inch. 😅 I like it though.
