I have 2 of these (one was a gift) and I find they are difficult. One of them was in direct sun. Big mistake. Burned to a crisp. I had to trim it back and it’s just now started to come back a couple of months later. I use filtered water as they won’t tolerate tap at all, the leaves are prone to crispy ends. With lots of pruning and determination I’m just about keeping them alive. They are definitely survivors, don’t give up!
