Does this have drainage holes?

No Tracy, it is a fish bowl so I put a lot of sand in the bottom.

Looks good, buy Tasteyg is right about drainage, i have had one on my window sil for 3 years now, and i think i give it a dripple of water about once every 2-3 weeks, always from the bottom, they can not tollerate sitting in water at all, they also don't like water on the leaves or flowers. could be tricky to water. but good luck with it Ualda

Yes Angie, I think you are right but they like some humidity too so sometimes I put a lid on - I am loving them, they are still flowering..
