    I got it at Lowes. I'm doing my best to keep it in good health, but you're right, it does need more light. That's why I'm getting additional lamps soon. Thanks for the help guys!

    Actually, the plants they bring in are just fine when they arrive... and then they go downhill with neglect. They don't know how to take care of them, so they sit and sit and don't get watered or air or food or properly lit.

    Definitely adelae; I've never seen one from Lowe's that didn't look like that. Once you get a brighter light, you could tip it over so that the stalk is lying on the media. I bet it'll sprout lots of plantlets at the nodes if it gets a chance to root them.

But now that its been in it for so long, you should probably acclimate it to less than 100000000000% humidity lmao
    ditto!
