makes a beautiful hanging basket. i have mine on the back porch where it recieves filtered morning sun. it does really well! almost lost it to some type of mold. 3/4 of plant was dead.. picked out all the dead foliage, cleared out the mold, and it has come back better than ever! a very easy to grow plant, that requires little care. =)
