  • I love this plant. It's in a container that hangs above my head. It spills over so much that it reaches the ground. Quite a conversation item. It sways in the wind and is beautiful. It feels soft and cool.

    Unsatisfied Did not survive, inferior performance or did not bloom well - won't grow again.
