A difficult plant to capture in pics. It's dark in color and makes long whips that are hard to see. This planter gets direct sun outside from about 11 AM until 4-5 PM, and I've put a few stems in the ground in similar conditions that are doing the same thing, so I don't think it's etiolated.

Does anyone else have this plant? I'm thinking it would make more sense & be easier to appreciate in a hanging planter than wound around/leaning on other plants in an upright one. The urge to snip & stick that stem around the variegated K. fedtschenkoi will probably be manifested by the end of the weekend.

The 2 anywhere-near decent pics I've managed since getting this as a little piece of stem last summer are here:

Very interesting. What a strange looking plant. The color is quite striking. I can't offer any advice, really. When in doubt in my own garden I might set up a plant in two locations to see where it does best. Hanging planters are basically impossible here, though, because of the freak wind storms we get in the winter.

Thanks! I have it in 4 places this summer, I think, some in ground, some in pots. I love the way it's similar to string of bananas.

As far as hanging pots go, they're the only ones I don't worry about in high winds. They just sway. Over winter, they are inside.

Finally a stem of this has grown significantly. I think I was putting previous individuals in too much sun.
