I purchased two of these plants at English Gardens and one of them began turning brown and crispy the very next day. The tag on the plant indicated that the soil needed to be kept moist, I usually water plants once a week. This plant seems to need a lot more attention that my other plants. I'm sure that I won't purchase these again.

My mother-in-law has a small houseplant of this that is doing well for her. She has an east window and tends to keep her plants pretty moist all the time. Its cute with very small leaves, about a half-inch.

Bought this as a houseplant in a hanging basket from Walmart about a month or so ago. I have had problems with it ever since I got it. It seems to be 'crispy' and loses leaves, yet if I up the watering on it, that doesn't help it either, they just get mushy. It's surviving, but doesn't seem to be an easy plant to please, as a houseplant. I noticed the last time I was in Walmart, that theirs looked even worse than mine, like they were breathing their last, and they had them on clearance.
