The leaves are soft and lush. Beautiful foliage. But whew, this plant is hard to keep alive. It’s a succulent but the information on care is rare. It seemed to thrive more outdoors. But then the pests got to it. Sprayed for pests and the leaves just turned green and sad… I’ve repotted in succulent soil. And it’s in triage. I don’t know if it’ll survive the winter.

This plant when it’s in all its glory is beautiful and soft and lush. But it’s very hard to care for. We only just found out it’s a succulent. NOT a regular foliage plant. So it’s going into triage this winter. Hopefully a small pot, fresh succulent soil, a quick water and leaving it be will bring him back…

Does much better outside in prolonged direct sunlight otherwise it gets leggy. The leaves are so soft and the plant grows vigorously. Hardy and drought tolerant, though will droop when thirsty. And it is very thirsty.
