Just going over ATP things and trying to update the information. I have been MIA for quite awhile but I am back now, hopefully to stay without another break. I wanted to update this information and if @Kevin51 is still a member I want him to know my prayers must have been answered because this plant is still alive and is over 4 ft. tall. I had thought of cutting it back but when I called Logee's for information on how to trim it, she said do not cut off more than 12 inches or it could die.
So, I did not cut it back. My luck would be it will die and I have had too much fun keeping it alive to loose it now.
This is what is looks like at this time. Forgive the background but I had it in the South Window in the bedroom and it loved it. I have since moved it to an East window to see if it would be just as happy with Eastern Sun instead of Southern Sun. So far I think it is not too happy but the weather has been crazy so it is really hard to tell if it is the location or not.
