They prefer bright, indirect light and don't need to be watered as frequently as some other plants.

Waffle Plant

This plant gets its name from its unique waffle-like leaves. It prefers bright to partly bright light and should be watered when the top 25% to 50% of the soil is dry.

The video has garnered quite a few comments from viewers, offering some additional insights and sharing their own experiences with easy plants to grow.
