What other plant parents say
My first plant and honestly it’s the best for a first time plant parent! I was looking for a succulent to get started on a new hobby because they are trendy and I heard they are easy to take care of. I came across this gorgeous dark moon and it looked like it desperately needed some tlc so I took it home. I got succulent soil and succulent food for it. I only had it for a few days and it already has a baby! I plan on watering it once a week. The more sunlight, the more vibrant the colors become! I say it’s a fast grower because it sheds its leaves and grows more leaves rather immediately. I thought succulents were slow growers! Highly recommend for anyone whether they are first time plant parents or proud plant addicts! The dark moon coloring of green purple and red is unique and gorgeous!
