I started my plant from a small piece of wood that was given to me as a Florida souvenir by a friend in 1974. I kept it indoors for many, many years, and have cut it back twice, about 4 feet each time. I can't imagine how tall it would be by now, if allowed to continue growing. It has put out many new shoots over the years, and is now in a pot so large that it is barely manageable by my husband, and not at all by me. It's beautiful, and I have enjoyed it so much for all these years. I live in Texas, and the plant has to over Winter indoors, or in a hot house. My children all have teenagers, and they were just kids themselves when I got this plant!
