Attractive variegation, glossy leaves, if you treat Brazil’s right they grow noticeably faster than other plants, very rewarding. Likes humidity, and medium light, easy to favor. 🥰

I wish it grew a little quicker, but I also have it hanging in a bathroom, so it doesn’t get a ton of light. I love the green and yellow leaves, it adds dimension to the plant. It’s pretty hardy and communicates when it needs water. Great for a first time plant parent.

So i’m not gonna lie, i had to figure this guy out. i knew you have to have well draining soul, but with that, you also have to have a well draining pot. i had it in a plastic pot earlier and it was getting way too much moisture because of the lack of effective drainage. i moved this little guy to a glass-like jar with a good drainage system and that was still too much. must make sure you don’t leave any standing water at all. but other than that, this is a perfect little plant. i love my basil 🥰
