What other plant parents say
Having a beginner plant that’s pet friendly is surprisingly difficult to find, and you end up with a lot of succulents. They’re often marketed as a “set it and forget it” plant, which isn’t true. They need water once every week or two, depending on size when you pick them up. Once they’re established, they propagate even under the most lacklustre conditions. Don’t let anyone tell you to treat them like a cactus, though. Avoid direct sunlight, you will know right away when they’re sunburnt! The leaves/nodes will darken and take on a purple-ish hue, and prolonged sun exposure will cause the tips to brown and break off (which you can see on mine, as I learned all this the hard way). A fun little spike monster that wouldn’t hurt a fly!
