Love love loveeeee this plant, don’t even remember buying it but it has FLOURISHED with very little attention or care, I keep mine in a south facing window and it LOVES the light. It has easily become one of my favorite plants. 💖🪴

I have this plant in a southwest facing window, and it LOVES it. The pot that I have is three separate plants (two small, one older), and I was worried they would be crammed, but I think they like it! It’s so easy to tell when it needs water because the leaves get a slight bend to them. This is my favorite plant that I own :) if you have a bright window, I highly recommend!!
