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.
