What other plant parents say

I love it so much and I would definitely recommend it for a beginner plant parent because it’s so easy to care for.
i actually propagated this plant after a larger plant got root rot. i had her in water for much longer than necessary and contemplated keeping her in water forever but decided to put her in soil. did super all but had a hard time staying upright so i added a stick to help.
