Good first houseplant. Can practically watch it grown. Isn’t too picky with light or watering, and works great with any decor.

this plant was given mealybugs from a neighboring plant but was one of 2 plants which were able to recover from the infestation and come back inside ! it’s pretty durable and forgiving if you forget to water it for a week or so. this plant has been great overall :))

Grows when it’s ignored! Neglected watering seems to spur it on. He’s in bright, indirect sunlight all day. Only direct light in the evenings and a distance from the window.
