I got my Celadine in Aug2013, bought it from Ken. First year it made good leaves, which was good enough for me, I have always managed to kill all my previous cuttings. As seasons changed that year to Fall, I overwintered it indoors, and just brought it out in mid Spring. I got my very first buds forming in Aug 2014, and those are the blooms as shown on the beginning of this thread. It really grew nicely in 2014, doubled its sized.
I also got those leaf markings, but it occurred more towards the cold season. I find that this Plumie likes our cool conditions, though have to shelter it in our garage or upstairs in a south facing room when we had some low 20's in January. After that I just brought it out again to enjoy the rest of our mild winter. The only other issue I got with it during winter time, it got bitten by some nasty critter..maybe a voracious snail. I though it will kill the growing tips, thankfully those bite marks healed and the tips continued on growing. We got some on and off rains during winter, it does not bother it. It finally started to drop the leaves to rest oddly when Spring was setting in around Apr to May this year, bare stick in June and resumed its leafing in July. At that time the tri-tips it was forming is more mature, and eventually the later part of this year, each tri-tip is trying to branch out too.
No blooms this year so far, maybe it is concentrating on energizing/hardening the new tips. But that is okay, I would rather see it mature a bit more so it can handle the forthcoming cold season. Our growing conditions here is rather different, since we get about 5 months of dry conditions, no rain in that period and dismal humidity. And our winter is our rainy season, so maybe that accounts for this plant's happier leaf growth during Fall all the way to Winter. I do have to watch out for our strong winds, we get that during late Fall and Winter. So far it had some bouts and held on well. They forecast an El Nino winter, so will see how it goes.
I intend to keep this plant at a manageable height, so maybe next year, I will have to chop it into parts, otherwise it will be hard to move it in and out.
