Great little plant

I bought 3 of these plants about a year ago and they are thriving. The suggested soil mix seems to be just what they need. I have them in a southeast facing window and water them once per week. I have not found them to be demanding at all. Maybe I have just been lucky.
Not easy to keep alive.

Heard miraculous properties abt the miracle berry so I got a plant. Lasted abt 6 month before it croaked. Being stubborn, I bought another one. That one died too withing 6 months. Think I'll buy berries instead of plants now.
