What other plant parents say
I love that this plant only needs water once a week and looks beautiful! I got mine with a few leaves a bit broken but it has healed slowly but surely overtime. This is definitely an indoor plant tho…

You could literally chuck a leaf in dirt and it would root even if you’re trying to kill it on purpose. Better in bright light to keep it growing in a compact way. They can get very tall though.
Love this little baby! I got one from succulent studios it was tiny and it has grown so much! I water it about once a week and it has no drainage but does fine. Hopefully I didn’t jinx myself.
It’s very easy to take care of, whether there’s bright light or if it’s in the shade it still looks amazing and healthy. I water mine every 14-18 days and that seems to do the trick :)
It almost doubled in size in a few weeks but after a while it broke if half so i used flower take and taped it back together. It’s been almost a week and it has reconnected to itself.
This is my second go around with chocolate soldier (my first got powdery mildew, hence the pest magnet). But this is one of my favorites and is otherwise easy to care for

Most potting soils come with ample nutrients which plants use to produce new growth.
By the time your plant has depleted the nutrients in its soil it’s likely grown enough to need a larger pot anyway.
To replenish this plant's nutrients, repot your Panda Plant after it doubles in size or once a year—whichever comes first.
