Baja_Costero said:I don't think you have Kleinia neriifolia. The plant I'm familiar with looks like this, with sausage shaped stems and flat leaves.
Is there a bunch of buried stem under there? I suppose you can leave it in its current pot and hope it roots better over time. It sounds like someone did not take the time to be sure the cutting was going strong before they put it up for sale.
If you do indeed have K. neriifolia, be prepared for summer dormancy. The plant grows in fall through spring. It loses all its leaves in the summer. So you may only have a couple of months left in the season before the plant loses much of its desire to root and grow.

Bean Bean Plant (Peperomia ferreyrae)
If it got too dry, leaves could fall, or if the roots are not healthy, that would also cause them to be unable to deliver moisture to foliage.
