This guy is a cutting from another plant and is doing quite well with minimal water and lots of sun.

This is an older picture, but mine has grown so much since then. I let us completely dry our before the next watering & I have it right in front of a window so it does get a lot of sun. I love it so much and I would definitely recommend it for a beginner plant parent because it’s so easy to care for.

It makes a good beginning succulent. Mine grew a third (3rd) stem on its own and manages to survive infrequent waterings

Not the easiest to prop but as long as you have good light and enough water grows pretty well. Have new babies on a bunch of plants. Took a while to trot from a cutting though. Had new growth before roots.

i actually propagated this plant after a larger plant got root rot. i had her in water for much longer than necessary and contemplated keeping her in water forever but decided to put her in soil. did super all but had a hard time staying upright so i added a stick to help.

i’ve knocked her over a few times and i got her VERY small so she’s been growing very long and leggy even though she is in a bright light spot.

Every so often I remove a leaf and a whole new stem starts. I’ve also cut one off and stuck it back in the dirt and it easily took root.

This plant will tell you when it needs to be watered. They will shrivel up and make it very obvious. Luckily they bounce back super easy too

Make sure you water it if you notice the leaves begin to shrivel and they will plump up again

This plant was a house warming gift along with two others. The other two were not nearly as hearty (that is why it is off center). This plant is easy and happy. Keeps going even when my cat tries to take it down.
