What other plant parents say
I dropped this plant when the soil was dry and compacted - it popped out of its pot. I didn’t have soil on hand to remedy so it sat on my counter for a bit before I finally repotted it. It survived with no signs of damage. Great plant to ignore but I’m excited to care for it better and see it grow too!
