I bought this for Galentines Day and I swear it had bad luck. She’s been dropped, knocked over and fallen off the plant area so many time by my family. I’m always worried that it’ll die by the trauma…

Oh my gosh! It’s so easy to take care of! I tend to be forgetful with my watering, but this lil guy is resilient! He is a cactus, so he can go for a long time without water! All in all, love them!

I brought this home after seeing it at 1/2 price dying in the local grocery store. Lots of sunshine and occasional watering has kept it blooming for three months so far!
