A little bit of a pest magnet, though I think that had more to do with the distributor than the plant itself. Keep watering to a minimum and add sand if you’re using regular potting soil.

since it’s a succulent it’s a great starter plant just to get the gist of it all and is super easy to take care of

It may end up changing color as it grows—mine did, at least.
