Just spectacular!
I thought mine were doing well until I saw yours...is it in the ground or a pot? And please, what do you feed it and have you cut stalks back over time?
I'm envious obviously,

And I have a few of Hester's children! And they are doing very, very well. But not quite as good as yours. I want to know what you are doing, too. Lovely plant. When I first looked at the top photo, I thought it was two plants - one on the table and one on the right. Took me several times, checking this thread, to realize that was ALL coming from the pot on the table.

Carol,
I completely missed the fact that it was in that small pot! I thought my cataract surgery took care of my poor vision - duh...I think maybe mine are in pots that are too big but it's too late to change now!
Glad the cuttings I sent are doing well and that you enjoy them.
