Got one of these as a small plant in a 3" pot and in 1 year's time has quadrupled in size and is looking perfect... growing in full sun and flowering wonderfully end of December, southern California. Great plant for pots or landscaping. Mealy bugs like it, and tend to attack around the primary flowering time (winter to early spring). However, this hybrid flowers, though less profusely, much of the year, or at least throughout much of winter, all spring, and most of the summer. I haven't seen a bloom in the fall yet.

The leaves are opposite, it really flowers about twice a year. the keel or bottom of the leaf is rough at the tip, which is pointed. The stem is stiff, but the plant will fall down due to the weight. It's need restarting at least every other year. Seldom has any diseases, hardy to 30F
Can be started by a leaf or take a cutting just below the leaf nodes don't water until you can feel that it is rooted down, by giving the plant a little tug. The leaves are no larger than a thumb nail, trim to train. Stop and enjoy the plant.
