What other plant parents say
This is a super fast grower, and I’ve successfully propagated at least 5 of its leaves without root hormone. However, no matter how little or how much I water this guy, it’s leaves have been splitting significantly. It’s started doing this out of nowhere, but at least I can propagate more of them to try out.
