If you tend to forget to water your plants this is perfect for you because it only needs to be watered every eight days.

I got this plant as a clipping, put it in soil, removed it from the soil because it was needed elsewhere, propagated it in water and then put it back into soil and it is thriving.

So far it’s pretty easy to look after and it survives if you forget to water it for a couple a weeks

Get succulent soil from a home improvement store like Lowe’s or Home Depot, it helps it stay alive better. Make sure to have a pot with drain holes in the bottom, and not a miniature pot, around 4-6 inches should do. This plant craves sun light, and when it gets enough, it will turn towards the sun and turn a dark, rich red/purple color, so make sure to put this plant in a place with a lot of sunlight. It needs to be watered about every 6 days plus or minus but if you forget , no worries, it’s leaves will wrinkle but soon after you water it, the leaves will plump up again since this is a resilient plant.
