What other plant parents say
Has super cool starfish leaves at the end of summer/beginning of autumn! Though they are a bit stinky and unpleasant smelling, they look great:) have had this plant for over two years and have nearly killed it many, many times and it has survived<3
The biggest annoyance is the little bugs that it attracts... quite a lot of them as well...
