What a cute plant! I had it for 2 months and it did absolutely nothing so I assumed it was a slow grower - then it exploded! A few more leaves and I’ll have a go at propagating and adding them back into the pot for a fuller look 🙂.

Treat its roots like an Aroid (Well-draining, highly oxygenated and moisture-retentive) and treat its leaves like a succulent.

Easy, stays on the smaller side. Don’t overwater or set in the sun and your little pal will be so happy.

Handled being mailed very well. Overnight it threw out THREE new growths and absolutely delighted me :) It’s long and gangly branches seem like they’re searching out something to hug..
