What other plant parents say
Goodness, I bought Huginn and Muninn quite a few years ago, originally for a school project. After that, they sat on my porch for over two years, no intervention. They survived strictly off of the rainfall my area got. Not a pretty sight, but a surviving one. I decided to repot them and take them inside. I’ve had them inside for about half a year and they’re recovering to the beauty they once held, slowly but surely.
If you don’t trust your capabilities of keeping plants alive, I suggest ghost plants, mine have been crazy hardy, they are definitely survivors.
