Roots need to be free to grow/hang out of pot + frequent misting

This plant is somehow still around even though it was neglected many times so it’s a trooper! This guy browns pretty easily in direct sunlight though. But otherwise it seems to keep growing new leaves

One of my favourite plants in my collection. Has never let me down. I like to keep his soil moist and mist occasionally. Likes a cool, dark corner of my room in summer. In winter, I keep him in a brighter spot. Grows so quickly in summer. I’m very proud of him.

I want to say that this pony does well in moderate climate. Definitely not doing well in Central Valley heat where the temps get up to 110 for a good 6 months out of the year. As in constant from day to night (night gets to 90s) . The little leaves got really dry even though I most every day. I think this plant would thrive in Northern California and southern a California weather.

I freaking love this plant. I can just look at it and pop a smirk when I’m feeling down. It do be looking like it’s sprouting tarantula legs from the soil (do not recommend for arachnophobes, much like myself) but he fr just vibin.
