This plant is lovely and the flowers are so adorable, but it's so fragile!! I broke a few stems just repotting it, then a builder knocked it over a few weeks later and killed all but one stem! It's now looking very bare indeed and showing no signs of growth any more :( if you're very careful it grows into a lovely little succulent, and it's a very low maintenance plant (it was thriving with me watering once a week or so and occasionally misting it)
