Propagates very easily; a great beginner plant. Very easy to take care of, all you need to do is water it when it needs (about once a week). It needing full sun limits where it can live, though.

I managed to save a grown plant and a few leaves from near-death, as well; this plant can take a beating from birds and seems to be more frost-tolerant than the information says. It was shielded from the wind and most of the leaves were insulated under some oak leaves, but it still got down to about -7C/20F for a few days before I brought the dropped leaves in. Three of six leaves are currently rooting quite nicely. I'm looking forward to them really taking off. :)
