Personally, I’m not a huge fan of succulents because they grow slowly and can be annoying to care for. But this guy is cute and pretty easy going.

If you’re an over-waterer you’ll kill it, but if you’re neglectful it’ll be happy!

Living rock plants are super tough and also very strange. Mine likes lots of sun and dry soil. It’s also having a baby pebble!
