Sometimes the leaves will turn black and kinda fall off, this usually means it wants water, i water mine from the bottom (I have it on a saucer) and put a little bit and the stem :)

This plant is strange and interesting all in one. Loves to be watered on schedule, requires lots of light, easy to propagate, and leave can call off easily.
