I have these as house plants here, never seen them wild or in flower beds before....
These are a very unique house plant that give off runners (like the strawberry plant) that hang down giving that special look for the home.
Easy enough to care for in indirect lighting. Over watering can mean root rot (death) to such a plant.
I take the "babies" put them in another container in a tray of water to stay moist and new roots appear and even more runners are produced from these "babies". Just cutting the runners off when it gets to crowded. Easy!
