My sister had this plant given to her and she kept it in her bay window in Ohio for years. It was outgrowing its home, so she gave it to me. I brought it to Florida and was going to bring it in at first frost but the frost got it first. the leafs have fallen off of it, but the stalk is not soft. I have no idea how to care of it and do not know what it is, for that matter to find out, how to care for it. The stalks are square and each corner has little fuzzy brown stuff on them. It had large oval green leafs on it that grow out the tops. When you cut into the stalk, it has what is just like elmers glue in it, sticky and all.
