thanks witt. I'm not sure about the lighting requirements. I have three double windowsills and try not to put plants on two of them. I have an outside shed with one window. I have an upright freezer I plan to put some plants on top of that. Not much room tho.

I just read that they like bright, indirect light. Hmmmm. I don't know where I have ANY bright light in this house. Maybe the bathroom.

You can't really tell how much she's grown, but she sure looks good to me. I don't do indoor plants very well, so I am proud.

witt, you have done real well! Your leaves look larger than mine. Here is a recent shot of mine, day 4 of being inside! I do like this plant too and I'm not a houseplant person either.

Your leaves appear to have a reddish cast. Is that just a trick with the lighting or is it reddish. I seem to remember that there are red ones too.

Probably the lighting. Oh, there are red ones? Oh boy, the search begins!

Very nice-looking plants ladies!

I have a white-faced and a pink-faced one. If you should accidentally break off a piece of stem they will actually root very easily in a vase of water--I grew several cuttings this way for months and they did well. They actually don't mind artificial light like the flourescents found in most offices, but they love to be misted...I try to mist mine regularly.

Thanks very much! I don't know why I am so smitten with this plant, but I truly adore it!

Oh goody countrykitty. Good to know they like misting. I still need to research the red ones.
