    I inherited this plant and after two months in my home, pruned a gangly branch. I was surprised to find the core of these woody-looking branches to be practically gelantinous. Whether due to transition shock or standard growth pattern, new leaves appear warped and I haven't yet seen a leaf normalize in shape to match the older growth. The "bark" is thin and soft; it can be damaged with a fingernail. Currently about 14" high, I'm curious to know what I have. Thank you. - John

    Watch the sap on your hands and tools. Can cause you some problems...
