I have one of these was given to me by my fiance's dad last summer.  Every time I look at this plant it has grown another couple of produces dozens and dozens of babies each time it grows a new level of "leaves" and these will root even in the cracks of my balcony.  I am constantly finding new mother-of-thousands in all of my other pots.  It is one of the easiest plants I have ever had, it loves sunlight and grows even when I forget to water it.  Get one!

 I have to give you an expert  rating on your explanation regarding this sometimes understood plant. A dear friend of mine gave me a start off of her extremely large plant 43 years ago. She explained to me the story of the plant and the care of it. Having so many other plats through the house l really didn't have a place for it. I had a small room on the south end of my house that I used for repotting and etc. I sat a table in in front of the only window in that room and sat the plant on it A few months later I noticed all off the babies all over the carpet and new plants growing out of the carpet. Needless to say I still have the original plant which is huge and have given thousands of starts away to family friends and even to strangers. It is one of my most coveted and prized plants
