The stems seem a little wilted and not as vibrantly green...

12” pot
Last watered 1 year ago
I’m worried about this one not having drainage as well. Rocks are okay, but it’s still really easy for them to get root rot, even with the rocks, because the water is still hanging out down there by the roots. The Greg app says that it likes to dry out completely before each watering. I would make sure to check it with a long chopstick or knitting needle and see if it comes up with wet crumbs or not. If it does, hit snooze and try again later.
This plant might like to be outside, you can always experiment with that depending on where you are. Just keep a close eye on it.

The plant may be in shock from being repotted. Also, this plant has a dormant phase where it will not look good but I don't know when that season is.
@kaleena is right about the drainage- too much water will cause the plant to wilt and die.
@GenialBegonia check the other post for a YouTube video on how to drill a hole. I promise once you have what you need you can do it really easily! I got mine on Amazon.

@sarahsalith we’ve been having unexpected hard freezes overnight here in Kansas. Ughhhh it’s the worst, honestly! Hopefully we will be able to put plants outside in a week or so.
Thank you both! This is the first time I’ve ever had this plant and haven’t been 100% on how to care for it.οΏΌ This is helpful though!
@kaleena I completely understand! I check the weather app, haul out plants - and then rush to haul them back in because it's not going to be 50Β° (like the app said) it's going to be 42Β° instead. At least I'm getting a workout. πŸ€¦β€β™€οΈ
@sarahsalith a work out and a true testiment to your impeccable dedication. πŸ‘ŒπŸ»
