Can’t believe this little plant is still alive after all these years! It’s not too healthy – I haven’t seen blooms on it since I first purchased it back in 2013. Many of the ‘branches’ have died off, leaving me with only one part of the plant. However, this part has started to grow larger after sitting on my kitchen windowsill in Reno. It has partial light from the window (tree blocks some of the afternoon light).

It’s one tough plant – my husband didn’t water it for 3 whole months while I was out of town working on a contract in another part of the country. In fact, every time that it became apparent that the plant was dying, it would be rescued in a sink after being doused with large amounts of water. Branches would then die off – but for the most part, this thing has survived the horrors of indifferent care, wildly swinging indoor temps, and multiple moves.
