Don't know the Latin for this thing. We just call it a spike plant. It's in a large pot along our walkway and every Fall we bring it into the garage for the Winter. For the next 4 or 5 months we don't do anything to it. No light, no water ... nothing. And every Spring we bring it back outside, just as healthy as when we took it in. The things kind of bullet-proof.
Many thanks for visiting and though I may not always reply to your comments, know that they are greatly appreciated.
