A complete jerk but also my favorite boy. Survived like a full year of mistreatment and thirst and is thriving now. He’s super whiny about everything but also refuses to die. 11/10, would recommend i…

The bane of my existence-so beautiful but so fickle. I cannot seem to get it right with her no matter what amount of humidity or light or water I give her 😭😭

Most potting soils come with ample nutrients which plants use to produce new growth.
