Care and tips:
🌞 = Prefers indirect sunlight but can tolerate a sunny window. Just watch out for leaf burn.
💧= Allow soil to completely dry between waters, then water and be sure to drain any excess water left as this will create a root rot problem.
🐶🐱👶= Can be toxic for cats and dogs, so keep out of reach of tiny humans and furry creatures. Safe for tortoises in moderation along with a varied diet.
Cuttings, like trimmed tops from plants that have gotten too tall or leggy, can easily be rooted in water, but it may take several months. Once roots have developed to at least an inch long, pot as described above. Multiple cuttings of different heights can be planted in the same pot for a bushy effect.
Things to look out for:
Overwatering: Stems and leaves can have a mushy appearance and turn yellow/brown in colour. The plant can also "droop".
Underwatering: If underwatered, the leaves and stems can look brown with a "crunchy" appearance, shrivelled/dried up with excessive leaf drop.
