I just recently got this baby and her leaves were all red. Brought her home and now she is doing wonderful! Leaves are starting to turn green again. They definitely liven up the place

They don’t like too much water, very cute, they hang down from pot so you can put it up high and it looks amazing! When I bought mine it was droopy, I watered it and leaves stood up!

Super easy plant to take care! I give it morning direct sunlight and water usually once a week, if the beans are more squishy then normal than I will water twice.

They’re cute when compact but get leggy very easily. Very easy to take care of though.

Try to get a pot with drainage because watering can be quick a struggle without it.
