I found this at one of our nurseries about ten years ago. Twenty bucks for a five gallon pot so crowded no one could breathe. Little did I know they love this situation. Years later, I own at l;east ten pots, all my friends have off shoots. A lovely green, smaller leaf, and as vivid green and happy leaf as you would ever want to have in your garden. I am usually blessed every year with a flower.
