It grows little tendrils that anchor it to the soil and sometimes it’s lower leaves fall off but that’s only because where the leaves were becomes the stem as the plant gets bigger.

This plant has a lot of dead petals and hole it’s growing. I’m not expert but I let the plant keep it so the dead leave go to the soil! :)

You can tell when it needs water because it will get softer. A bit temperamental but can survive a lot.
