I’ve had this plant for a long, long time and for a while it was a dark purple brown colour. This was simply under watering. It needed more water than I previously thought it did. When I say fast grower I really mean it. Mine is huge now and i’ve had to repot it into a significantly larger pot to home it’s new growth. Lovely thing that is eye catching on a windowsill.

This plant is impossible to kill. I know many people say that, but I’ve had this plant for over three years now and for about two of those years I had zero watering routine and basically just forgot about it. This is a great plant for beginners, but might be too easy to take care of for advanced plant parents.

I am not always the best plant parent and this little guy survives it ALL. I even had to get a larger pot so it could continue to grow.
