I came on this site looking to identify a houseplant left to me by my late mother, and lo and behold I found it almost right away and this is it. Mine is at the moment 21" tall and is supported by frames alongside it in the outer, decorative pot. I was interested to know that it doesn't need full sun, I should probably move mine as it's on a table below a very sunny window. However it is obviously doing very well at the moment so thank you very much for helping me out with the name of it and the watering instructions. Many many thanks, Barbara (aka Freda1).

A wonderful, low maintenance house plant. As it gets to over a foot high it starts to droop, making it a marvelous edging plant for containers.
