I found this site when I was searching for information on this plant. I read them all and it seems that no one has really 'nailed' it on this plant's requirements. I just purchased an offset and I will gladly see if I can figure it out. If there is anyone out there who can give me details on what they know, please reply. I'm a newbie to this forum and I really look forward to conversing with like minded folks out there. I live in Gulfport, Mississippi USA, coastal area. I tend to favor plants that are especially suited to my clim. I have many offsets that I am experimenting with. The fussy ones I will trade. I'm very impressed with the level of expertise in this forum and it's good to find that there are other nutty people out there just like me!!!
