This plant is great at propagating! Every time I turn around it has grown another bloom. It has beautiful blooms with pretty leaves as well. Also has a wonderful smell to it as well. Not too much a high maintenance either!

My geranium loves being watered and is super easy to take care off—doesn’t need much attention and just does it’s own thing. It’s so fun to watch it bloom!

martin grew extremely quickly. he was propagated and grew around 20 leaves and plenty of flowers within months. he lives by the window and grew in one direction due to the speed of his growth so i recommend spinning your new zonale regularly
