What other plant parents say
This plant loves to be watered frequently but can handle lower light than most. She communicates when she needs water, though, rather than just dying and losing leaves right away!
not safe for cats, however mine leave this one alone. always just thrives with barely any attention and is most likely ready for a reporting already!
Adorable, but it has lost 2 leaves (yellowed). It was my fault though for leaving the soil dry and not following my watering schedule
i go back and forth with dumb canes. one minute she’s happy, the next her leaves are browning.
I have to let it dry out almost fully. Otherwise very easy. Not the fastest grower right now.
so pretty and loves the sunlight! one of my favorite plants! she brings me so much joy <3
She’s beautiful but super toxic! Keep away from pets and kids
The only plant that hasn't given me any issues.
Died for no reason I can tell :/
Needs lots of direct sunlight
