About Gollum

Gollum is a super rare houseplant 🌿 that needs very little water to thrive. They do best in long-lasting, direct light ☀️ and should be less than 1 foot from a window.

Gollum likes soil that is extremely well-draining. Your plant shouldn't need added fertilizers if you repot each time it doubles in size.
