Author's NotesWhen I purchased this plant, I assumed it was going to be a highly succulent plant that would be hard to grow. After 2.5 years it has survived by just being careful with the water. A few times I left them outside and they got poured on and survived. Only wish I had more light during the winter as they sit on the window with south exposure.
