I normally have a hard time with succulents 🤷🏽‍♂️. But here i go again.

I just bought this one and really don’t have much to say. The little yellow flowers look kinda cute it. However, for now I’m really just hoping it turns out well 🤞🏾.

This species can survive anything! If any of the leaves fall of you can just plop them in another pot and it will start growing! They start out growing slowly but they slowly grow faster and faster!

This succulent tolerates most soils but thrives in light and well draining soils. It us drought tolerant once it's established a good deep root system! Which is great if you're ever busy and forget to water for a while. Recommended for people starting off with succulents!

Mine grew over sideways. It would probably do really well in a hanging basket
