Simi Valley, California
I have this plant for years. Got it very young, replanted it in my window, and now (maybe 7 or 8 years later) itīs just like that. Rio de Janeiro.
This plant is 7' tall and grown without direct sunlight. Will be redder with some sunlight.
This plant is normally in filtered light by my front door. Brought it into the sun for photo. Kept indoors during winter.
The reddish leaves look rubra but they are duller red, grown in intense heat and light and dry conditions
my plant, October, southern California, in partial shade
same plant as one above after extreme cold (for southern California) and very little water
This is the red version, I just bought it yesterday at a home and garden show.
January colors, southern California
turns out it's not a good plant for a windy climate (day after Santa Ana winds, southern California)
