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!!
