Seems to grow rather slowly and the leaves will dry up and turn brown if you don’t water correctly. Must clean off dust regularly but be careful as the delicate leaves break off easily.

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.
