I am in love with this plant. It can take the cold and hot and sure does love her sun! I have her in a pot with another plant and they get along great. U water her and just let her go. Only have to water every 2 weeks or so. She can handle being very dry.

I got mine as a tiny baby from Walmart and it has doubled in size since I moved it to a slightly larger Bulbasaur planter. It is growing still and it is leaning out of the planter now. I love that it didn’t die when I transplanted it, my track record is bad.
