This plant has grown much faster than I expected. I don’t know if that’s good or bad, it’s been a surprise because I don’t pay much attention to it.

I have ADHD and legitimately forgot I bought this until I found it one day. The other two succulents bought with this one were very dead, this one was alive and is somehow still thriving many months later. I’m pretty sure it could survive anything.

Easy to look after, just inside during winter and outside during summer. Got it for free because it was dead when I found it, and now it’s thriving and healthy after just two weeks.

I think that you wouldn't really know if it was dying as long as you keep it near the sun and water about a week
