honestly a cute plant but she’s so sensitive. her leafs will fall off so easily, I shake my plants lightly to mimic wind in their natural habitat, this also helps them to grow faster and stronger stems. whenever I do it to this plant at least 4 leafs will fly off . but she’s a easy plant to care for and fairly cute I think anyone could care for it just be sure not to water too much it’s better to forget than to water to early.
