How not to kill me
This plant needs bright light, they are not suitable for dark rooms. They will thrive best outdoors in courtyards or a balcony.
Water me every few weeks or when my soil feels dry. If my leaves and stems are shriveled give me a small amount of water daily and I should plump up again!
Pull off any old leaves and as a bonus any cuttings can be re-potted to grow more of me!
