I've been eying them on e-bay. Is the secret the lights? 'cause I usually fail miserably getting them through the winter...or do they have to have a dormant period?

Yours is absolutely gorgeous!!

This one has no dormant period that I know of....I just got it in the spring though. The ones sold as shamrocks are best if they are allowed to go dormant though. The orange one is easy to grow from cuttings...
