Even though Zoey looks lovely, she browns so easily. I’ve tried the window, near the window, nowhere near a window etc and she’s never happy.

I’m totally a person who loves unique things and this plant is one of them. A new member to my gazebo tribe of plants, she gets a bit of afternoon sun as it passes through the day.
