I’ve had this plant for about a month. I purchased a cutting, It’s doubled in size. I have positioned on a window sill of a window that faces south.

I love this plant. It’s just so darn cute and really really easy to propagate. I would recommend this if you want an easy fast growing plant.

I love this plant, it’s fairly easy only a few issues (brown leaves every now and then) but super pretty otherwise!
