Stick it in the soil in a sunny position.   Feed it,water it. Keep the cat and kids away from it. The bottom leaves often do drop off as the plant grows.

 It wont survive outside in winter but you can easily root  a foot long cutting in water over winter in the window bottom.

Help Red Beetles

Rubber gloves and a pad of wet kitchen roll. Wipe them off and drop the larvae in the bin. The red beetles have laid eggs which have hatched. the black is excrement and the larvae are in the middle of it. They will strip your plant of leaves in a week otherwise.
