What other plant parents say
Such a cute and unique plant to add to your room or maybe collection! They are rather hardy and have a different look to them, sort of eye catching. I would completely recommend this plant if you are…
I want to like these plants so much because they’re cool climbers, but they brown pretty easily. They need to be watered every 1-3 days depending on environment (sunlight, pot size).
I keep mine in the shower, needs bright indirect and humidity. I rotate it every time I water so the leaves don’t grow all one direction.
idk guys i really like this plant although after a while it completely dried up so i’m working on fixing it.
This plant genuinely hates me
very easy and nice to look at
It’s really nice
cute baby <3
