About seven years ago, my son drove his friend and friends mother to Florida. The lady they stayed with gave him many plants to bring home to me when he told her that I was a plantaholic and would love her gardens. One was a Jatropha Multifida. I have kept this plant very healthy simply by putting it out on my back porch in the sun after last frost and bringing it in to my cool, master bath (north side) which is more of a sunroom, before first frost here in southern Alabama. I give it no water once it is inside except for a sip once a month and it gradually loses all it's leaves. Come spring you can see it begin to get new life and it starts all over again. It's about five feet tall and has never been repotted, although, I think I will repot it this summer to give it some fresh, light, soil mix. Very easy and really neat looking.
