We have one of these plants at home,
 but never knew what exactly it was.
Plus ours never has bloomed til this
year! Russell got our start years ago
from his Grandmother.  When we
get home I'll post a photo of it blooming.

I think it's awesome, Kathy. Kind of a "leave-me-alone plant" I am guessing.

Often times the most important element in plant care is patience.
