He hated me. I hated him. We consciously uncoupled. No matter how much love I gave this little guy, it wasn’t enough. Least favorite pep.

This plant is fine. It’s very easy to take care of. I’ve moved it around to several areas in my home with varying levels of light and humidity, and it’s just continued vibing.

This guy is super cute and started off strong, but after doing the same thing for a couple months, he’s slowly been wilting and dying. I think this type of plant would do best in a window that gets a super lot of light, and I just don’t have that in my house.

Love the leaves. It’s been kind of tough to find the right spot, but it lets you know when it needs something without just dying overnight so that’s nice

A small cute plant, is very lush and nice. i think it’s so cute that when by a window all of the leaves will turn to face the sun, and when u turn it you get a nice bushy plant 🥰

So Pretty! Hasn’t browned one leaf since I have had it. I don’t have it in direct sunlight (it’s in the middle of my dining table in a fish bowl). And it looks fake, I promise it’s real but it looks like plastic! Love it

So easy to look after! If the leaves start dropping a little just water it and it will be revived the next day! So many new leaves growing all the time and she’s starting to bloom flowers now that it’s spring so precious!

Even though I dropped it, it looks GORGEOUS again only 5 days after. It grows really nicely if watered at the right intervals!
