he’s been in my life for a while now and i just figured out his watering schedule. he is dramatic and his leaves do tend to fall off from time to time but other than that he is a great little plant and makes my day seeing how lush he is

Very easy to take care of! Great for a beginner. Forgiving and leaves never brown. Doesn’t grow a lot, so it will probably stay quite small.
