"My Mother was given a start of this plant when I was 8 yrs. old.Mother gave me the plant in 1977 and I have divided it several times. Somewhere in these pots is a 50+ yr. old root. I have learned how to care for mine by trial and error. I did learn two very important thing. 1. they bloom better if they are root bound. 2. If you pinch the tips off of the long shoots it will force them to make more leaves, instead of growing long and producing 1 or 2 leafs on the end. If you look closely at the picture you will see that there are 2 pots here. Each pot has a tomato stake in it that the stems are tied up to and that is what gives mine the cascade leaf look. Feel free to write if you have any questions on the care of this plant. firstname.lastname@example.org "
