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.

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!

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