This plant hasn’t changed much since I got it but it hasn’t gone downhill either. It’s also just very gorgeous to look at which definitely adds point for me. I’ve noticed this stagnation in my other plants as well so I fertilized/fed them with some eggshells and liquid fertilizer. Im hoping this will get me some more noticeable growth.
