This plant and I have been through it. It bloomed during the summer and stayed relatively healthy. But more recently has started showing some brown spots which I suspect are from over-misting so watch out for that. It’s also gotten a bit too leggy so I’ve cut its stems for propogation and I’ll put them back into the pot to keep a fuller look.

Love this plant! If you give it enough sunlight it will grow fast! My mistake was giving it too large of a pot at first and not enough sunlight, so it didn’t grow, and would get tiny brown spots on the leaves. Since giving more sunlight and trying my best not to overwater, it’s been growing great and looks beautiful. 😌

Super easy to propagate from. It came a bit straggly and limp but now she’s strong and growing a bunch.

She’s a strong, confident but low maintenance plant that will thrive with bright direct or indirect sunlight – the brighter the light, the more vivid her coloring will be! She will need pretty frequent waterings because this girl gets thirsty!!! You’ll know that you have waited way too long to water when you see her start to droop or brown.

I don’t know why but this plant has never liked me. It just won’t thrive in my environment… yet. I’m determined to figure it out though!

This is definitely one of my favorite plants in my collection! The color is an eye-catcher, and this plant is so easy to propagate! I currently have four cuttings that all have great root systems! It grows really fast as well. Only downside is the leaves brown easily, but I’m guessing humidity levels contribute to that.

Wanted to keep this little guy alive so bad. Unfortunately I think I added too much soil. Apparently these guys do not like soil touching their leaves at all. It died within three weeks after repotting.

They’re thicker, sturdier and less viney than their cousins, the Wandering Jew. The pink, purple and green striped coloring is a treat to the eyes. I bought this as a new plant. I’m praying for the best for Nanny!
