I do the watering with wicks. You thread yarn through soil and dangle it in water holding container. Keep it by the window but away from direct sun, like through blinds. Hope that helps :) ps l don't know how to do smilies with my phone.

@newbud How often do you water yours?

I put water in the container when the water dries up. The soil would feel dry, but the wick keeps it just moist.

@heatherdirtyhands Thank you so much! I bought them yesterday, so I can't take any credit, but I agree that the leaves are beautiful. 😊
