Plant newbie here. My dad had an amazing green thumb when I was growing up, and I didn’t appreciate how challenging plants can be (at times). I’ve had some success during the pandemic, but it’s hard in a New York apartment that does not have all south facing windows. I would love advice on this little one that was a clipping I got from a friend.

Is this pot too small? It was standing up nice and straight for a while, but now it’s flopping over. I water it about once a week, about half a cup. It gets afternoon sunlight.

Beautiful ! :heart:
4 leaves !?! Wow
I've killed two of them in the past :sad:

I think it's still slow to growing though.. It's been unseasonably cold here and my home is typically colder than average too.
Maybe third times the charm? You should definitely get one, I love how big and leafy it gets! I was at a nursery yesterday and I had to stop myself from getting more.

I did add one more! If it does well, I may make myself a succulent arrangement.
