hardy plant. I originally bought it in a really tiny container and one day I noticed the leaves were super floppy and weak. They needed to be repotted in a bigger pot and I was afraid of root rot so I sprinkled the roots in cinnamon before I repotted. Within 24 hours it was like nothing had happened and new leaves are coming in!
