Easiest plant i have ever taken care of (or rather not taken care of). You literally can’t kill this plant. I’ve neglected it multiple times, over/underwatered it, experienced rootrot, given it minimal sun as well as full sun. Still puts out beautiful new leaves constantly. Very hardy plant. Easy to propagate too.

Def a recommendation from me!
