One of new favorites!!! It has fuzzy thick leaves and a beautiful brown/chocolate tip and doesn’t need to be watered often and has the cutest pups for propagation. Just be mindful of pot size for it …

Saved this plant from my roommate who hadn’t watered her in three months. Split the plant up, repotted it, and hoping for the best 🤞

Don’t overwater, it will look really bad because it looses its leaves. But if u can keep it alive it’s super cute and fuzzy
