Stubborn aluminum plant's drama unfolds

Genuinely the most stubborn and dramatic plant I’ve ever seen. These photos are 2.5 hours apart and he does this every few days! πŸ˜‚

Lmaooo poor guy. My coffee plant is like this too, such drama queens πŸ˜‚
@rebbieirl I swear, always on their periods!!
@robbi_rose hahahaha truly πŸ˜‚
Self-watering pot for him!
Maybe repot it into a plastic pot that fits inside the terracotta pot would help with retaining more moisture. Possibly do not leave it so long before watering as this will cause stress for the plant πŸͺ΄ πŸ’šπŸŒ±
@tmbryant37 oh yes that’s a good idea!!!!
@Gordo awesome, will do. Thanks!
I've got one of these, it hasn't flopped over yet but definitely doesn't like to dry out. I think yours would be less up and down if it was in a plastic nursery pot. I haven't ever had a self watering pot but that might suit him better too. I also find mine wants quite a lot of light, although not direct. πŸŒΏπŸ’š
@LuxuryMint great advice, thank you!
@robbi_rose That is what my Frosty Fern does if I miss his watering by 1 day, don't mist him, or don't bottom soak him for his watering AND top water him. *sigh*
@Bunny413 hahah just like this guy!!! SO dramatic
Drama llama πŸ˜‚
