Hello again. You can propagate theses. Just plant back into the same pot. Should root reasonably quickly.
Can I ask where you got it? I’m having some issues with shipped plants as well
@Lila @PureKippernut I would contact the seller just in case they can help you out. Just take pics and see what they can do. Most reputable sellers will work with you. I buy from Etsy all the time and have had some problems with shipping and they have worked with me. One sent me a new plant and another gave me 50% off.

But @Gordo is right you it should root reasonable quick.
@PureKippernut I got them from the sill. Recently a lot of my plants from them has came damaged in some sort of way
@KikisOasis reached out last night, I got them from the sill so I know they have good customer service
@Lila yes they do. Actually I think The Sill and Greg have partnered together. I might be wrong tho. But I do see a lot of advertising for them.
@Lila the sill does send a LOT of damaged plants but they are really good about replacing them πŸͺ΄πŸ€žπŸ»
@karlv93 they are pretty good. But then the replacement plant is also damaged lolll
Yeah, it’s the same plant. They just look different when they’re young.
