I’ve had 2 of these guys die on me due to my overwatering :( So don’t overwater!!
My 1 survivor is thriving though :) I keep him right beside my glass patio door, so barely any direct sunlight. Once spring hit, he hasn’t stopped growing! Such beautiful deep leaves.
& If you’re from Hawaii like I am, or any island, be sure to get one of these plants to keep as a memory of home.♡

I don’t know if I got it from Lowe’s already sick, but this plant quickly showed yellow/brown spots and it affected all leaves, including the baby ones. The stalk also has a yellow/brown edge. It’s been placed further from the other plants and is being treated with a fungicide/bactericide and neem oil, I’m hoping I can save what little leaves it has left since I removed the severely bad leaves.
