Gardeners' Notes:

I saw this plant growing in pots at the Botanical Garden in Atlanta, Georgia and it is rather striking. I couldn't find anybody there to determine if they bring the plant inside for the winter or if it just dies back and regrows in the spring.

This is a very interesting plant that I purchased in April 2010. Planted it in full sun but the summer sun in central Texas was to hot. We dug it up in August and moved it to full shade and the plant is doing great with lots of offsets. Hope this helps.

I bought this plant at a yard sale for $3.00, 5 weeks ago. It had been neglected. The pot had been knocked over on its side and left like that for quite a while. The new leaves had grown to a funny angle so that when you stood the pot up, the 2 stems were horizontal. I brought it home, repotted it, gave it water and fertilizer. I have been rewarded by 3 new leaves and it is quite the conversation piece when people visit. This plant tries hard to please the careful gardener.
