Oh my goodness, I love this plant. I tried to grow this once and killed it before, after a few years and some confidence I finally decided to try again. I cannot get this plant to stop growing and that excites me. It has only been 3 months with 4 new separate growths. I'll have to switch out the pot soon. This plant has thoroughly surprised me.
