Fun looking succulent. Very easy to propagate just leave the leaf on soil and it will soon shoot out a root and start to grow into a new plant.

I bought these gals near dead on a clearance rack and with lots of light and a little water they started to thrive. Easy to care for, tolerant, and loves sun. Also pretty sturdy and good for novices. When leaves fall off stick them in the dirt and they grow more plants!

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.

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