I'm not sure what I need to do to make this grow and be h...

Do these like deep pots or like 4 inch not deep pots??? Mine has it's stems showing on each cluster something isn't right and I've got them in very gritty SUB but it's it too deep?? They weren't healthy when I bought them. They looked half this size and almost dead!!! But still something isn't right. Thanks

@VerifiedRedbean Hello Jessica welcome to Greg! I cannot claim I know anything about this plant as I do not own one, however when I see on your plant card info it states that these are in pots without drainage, if this is correct you will need to change it out. Most plants will need drainage holes in the pots so their roots are soaking at all times. Bottom water is best. To allow roots to grow. Not sure about this plants lighting requirements but I hope someone on here will let you know. You will want the roots covered at the top of your plant. Best of luck with your plant care journey.. keep us posted on your care!! πŸ™ŒπŸ»πŸ˜
Mine seems to be happy and healthy hanging in a bright west-facing window. I have her in a plastic container inside of a basket that wasn’t much bigger than the pot she came in. I water when she’s dry and I just sprinkled on some worm casings so I’m hoping to propagate soon! Good luck! :)
100% agree with @CourtlyKingfern on repotting into something with drainage. @VerifiedRedbean do you mist it at all? I think these prefer a little more humidity, so try an occasional misting with some bottled water or keeping it near a humidifier if you have one. It seems pretty happy in the photos, the color looks good and there are no drooping leaves, so you seem to be on the right track.
Thank you everyone
