adorable little guy! he’s very small :) a bit hard to tell when they’re thirsty though, so i’m waiting until the leaves have a little bit of give until i water (they have a hard, almost inorganic feel to them most of the time). he grows slower than my other plants but it’s still noticeable, and he’s got a fun shape!! i love my son
