She was almost dead when I got to her but after a few days of watering and some good sunlight she bounced right back! It was amazing to see how fast she came back to life after a little TLC!

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!

This plant almost looks fake, but it’s so cute I have it as a desk plant and I just love it so much! They grow very slowly though so just forget about it other then watering for the most part if you like to observe your plants growing lol

Found this little gem at Walmart! Easy to care for, though the original pot does not come with draining holes so watering a little at a time has worked better than watering once a month as directed.

Very cute, haven’t killed it yet 10/10

I have mine situated near a shaded south facing window and am a/c vent yet it still has plenty of new growth. I water it when I remember to and it seems happy.
