I’ve had this one for a little under a year. I have to appreciate it for its ability to tolerate a fair amount of neglect, as the first couple of months I had it, I hardly looked at it save for the occasional watering (it was winter.) This growing season it has started to put out some new growth, and I think it has potentially to be a nice trailing plant one day- however the growth on this one seems slow, so I think that will be more of a long-term goal for this one.

Very easy to grow and propagate. Give it plenty of light and stay up on its waterings and it will grow very well.
