    I live in the states, Florida, never been to a Botanical Garden... now
    this web site made me curious enough.

    I was hoping you might know the name or how I can locate one?

    I had received a clipping from a plant the most Unusual Plant I ever
    seen I had it for three years I kept it indoors and it grew very so slow
    it bled, Looked like milk film. Leaves was bright glossy lime green
    looked like plastic it was a vine that intertwines with each limb only
    grew leaves at the tops it was narrow leaves lime green color does not
    bloom everyone who saw it thought it was fake.

    the strange part the leaves would change colors when the temperature
    changes.
    The plant died in the frost.
    I really would like to locate it again and never depart again.
    Sincerely Plant Lovers,
    Matthew
