This plant bounced back from shipping really quickly. I have it under a grow light, in its original pot, 7-8 feet away from a north facing window with a porch and sheer curtain on it and it is doing great. Leaves are still unfurling and getting taller. The bottom leaves are yellowing, but that is expected. This plant hasn’t started climbing it’s stale yet, but I know by next year, it will be a monster! Exactly what’s needed in an indoor jungle!
