Ohh boy egad I really thought I had lost this plant! IT did very well over last summer and winter, I don't know what happened this spring because it started dropping leaves ~ when it only had 3 leaves left on it ,I took it outside where it gets morning sun and afternoon shade
And she has been thanking me ever since grin

Thanks Jiffy!! I call this my 'Moving Plant" I swear the leaves seem to move as the sun hits them at different times of the morning and again as it get shade.

I also have the beautiful tristar and checked a university site for information. One interesting thing was that the leaves swivel on an axis and not only follow the sun but the moon as well. Neat, huh?
