  • After almost killing this beauty off, it has begun to stabilize. New growth is steady, leaves that looked in bad shape have all “rotted” off or been snipped off, and all seems calm with the purple guy

  • Eek! I let the terrarium get too moist and the water on this poor thing “burned” it! Yikes, removed its planter from the terrarium and moved to a partially sunny area to dry! On a good note though, it has a definite second stem, and noticeable growth bud
