    My podiatrist's office has this beautiful plant. I was given a few pieces and planted them immediately. They are absolutely beautiful. I put them in a pink pot, which brings out the vivid purple color. I need to find out how to attach a picture. I'll be right back.

    Beautiful plant! I had it years ago, I forgot how much I liked that one. Now I have to go find another. :)
