Hi Wyatt. Be sure that you don’t overwater Harper. The bulb that you see retains water so they don’t have to be watered really super often maybe once every couple weeks. οΏΌ
@TastyBismarckia first, I would definitely put it in some succulent/cactus soil that drains very well. I use Bonsai Jack's Gritty Mix or Fat Cactus succulent and cactus soil and I add perlite. Like @HoneyBee65 said, the trunk of these guys store water so they don't need water often. I water mine maybe every 2-3 weeks but I water until it flows out of the drainage hole.
The East facing window is perfect! They like plenty of sunlight but are a little sensitive to harsh direct sunlight.
Hope this helps and Good Luck πŸ€
