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.

Remington came from a grocery store, so of course better light conditions and plant food would make him bussin’. He’s grown about 3 inches from original base to curving stalk + 8 new leaves after 3 months. Be gentle in removing dead leaves, use a tweezer and nip it at the base of the stalk. This helps in continued growth to rest of the plant. I also use a dropper when watering day happens. 3-4 full pipette drops at the most. One through rinse once a month(slowly run water from surface till dripping through bottom). Plant food once a month to keep the growth spirts going.

You need to rotate it!! They only brown easily if you don’t rotate it regularly. I’ve never had bugs attracted to it.
