I’ve repotted a couple times and the leaves always brown. I got him when he was very small and he grows like a weed so I’ve had to re pot a couple times! Other than that very easy to grow

Flapjacks aren’t needy plants that constantly need to be watered and sunlight exposure. A little goes a long way for them and are generally easy to care for and beautiful !

This plant is tough. There’s a chalky residue on the leaves and it gets mad with too much or too little water. He’s going to break my heart.

Left mine outside in under 30 degree F weather, they browned and almost died ; after drying them out and keeping them in their usually warm area : they are survivors to say the least 💪🏽🤍

This plant is really easy to take care of. I realized it was dying in a small pot so I replanted into a bigger pot with some water and the next day, it was immediately 10x better.
