Comments: This cascading plant is an excellent choice for hanging baskets. Plantlets develop from the flowering racemes and these are used for propagation. Avoid florides in water supplies and soil mixes as they cause foliage tip burn. Often grown indoors as a house plant, but best to locate near a windown that receives several hours of direct sunlight during the day. Requires a minimum amount of winter protection in the lower South. Leaf-tip burn is a problem that can give this plant an untidy appearance much of the time.
