Care instructions : Water twice or thrice a week depending on when the soil is dry.
Known as the miniature pine tree for obvious reasons, this plant is the best first plant if your green thumb is just on the brink of showing up. Being a succulent, this is basically a water storing plant, but it doesn’t mean that you never water it. Having killed quite a few stems of this plant by not watering for over a week, I have learnt that even though these are “hard to kill” plants, they do require basic care of watering twice a week. In fact, the first plant in the new pot is a propagated cutting from the original (my first plant ever) which was dying When it comes to watering, it is best to use a pressurised spray bottle as it gives you control over the amount of water you pour. However, in case you want to water less frequently, then you can water them till it runs out of the drainage holes and not bother about it for a week.
