Needs a lot/constant direct sun light, leaves will shrivel and fall off if not exposed to enough sunlight. Doesn’t need much water so it will survive if you forget to water it now and then, one of the easiest succs to propagate

It's is so easy to over water it and cause root rot, but it is also weirdly easy to propagate. I dig down some leaves to the dirt and they started to show roots a little bit after two weeks
