It will look semi-normal for ages and suddenly a stem will shoot out the middle and flower! Remember to spritz it/keep it away from sunlight as the stem can dry out easily

Honestly I’ve had this little guy for so long and even though mine looks a bit worse for ware I’ve had him 4/5 years which includes my neglectful teenage years where I forgot he existed but no matter what this little plant pulls through and I would recommend this plant to anyone who’s new to plants and wants something small and easy to look after

Sprouts so many pups I’m amazed! It was living in a horribly small pot and being overwatered when i bought it but it’s such a hardy plant it’s still doing great!
