I got this plant at Home Depot in a basket of succulents. Clearly he needed his own pot because he was beginning to branch out and outgrow the basket. I put him in a clay round bowl with other succulents and he clearly doesn’t want to be with other plants he wants his own space so he can spread out along with his babies
