Colin was abandoned by someone at my place of work. He asked for nothing and got it. I adopted him. He is happily living of my energy now.

I love this plant!! It’s already popped out two babies and has made it through the winter without getting too leggy...I’m excited to see how it’s going to thrive this summer!
