Very easy to take care of. Ensure that it is good cutling or seedling. Take caution with watering and use either drainable pot with soil or a pot with rocks/water beads.

Kobe is AMAZING and is very easy to grow. We bought ours already in a cool pattern, but if your nifty enough they could look really cool in sculpted positions.
