    I got this from Dan Newman back in February as a two leaf division. I love this for it's amazing shocking color!

    Very nice. Has the plant grown well for you in your cool conditions in the past 11 months?

    Kelly, it's grown a lot of roots, but hasn't grown any leaves. It does seem happy and I expect it will put out a flush of new growths this spring.

    Nice to know what to expect! I got one in sad shape a few months ago, two leaves and no roots, and it seems to be perking up a bit now that it's under lights in the cool cellar tank. How much light do you give this one?

    So far it's in a fairly shady spot, mostly due to space issues. At some point in the future when my cold greenhouse is done I'll give it more light.
