Bought this for $3 at Kroger. It looked overwatered and was dying but I gave it new soil and it's thrived both indoor and outdoor. So beautiful and I've recently propagated it very easily in soil

Pretty asf plant, the pink and magenta leaves are gorgeous. Definitely under water, and give it plenty of light. These guys get LEGGY if not given enough light.

Will definitely do better in full sun or it will get leggy. Super easy to propagate, just throw the stems in water and make sure the node is covered.

I rescued this plant from near death due to shipping during hot summer weather. It’s now abundant and one of the happiest plants in my collection.
