This plant is a succulent type. It thrives on little water. It stores its own water. The tree just couldn't compete. If you had watered more, the tree would have lived and this plant would have died. By watering infrequently, this guy thrived and the tree died. This plant did not kill your tree, grins.

  • Being grown in a pot indoors this plant will only be sprawling and gawky. If I were you, I'd snip the top new leaves off and transplant into potting soil to make a new plant. The original plant (mother plant) will get thicker and fuller. The new baby can be in it's own pot cuddled up to mom? Just keep the terminal or apex bud snipped off. Most of the energy in that plant is in the apex bud. Snip that off and the energy is reallocated to the rest of the plant.
