Amber,
Did it come with that stake already,
or did you add it??

If it was left in the trailing habit,
I would almost say it's a Green Wandering Jew..
*just trained up the stalk...*

actually no, I just put that stake in there cos it was all flopping on the floor and didn't look very nice! It was only about 7 inches when I got it and it was growing up and up, and then edventually it flopped, it's about 24 inches or so now...

You might try clipping it at the end,
and stripping a few bottom leaves, and then stick that part into some water..
It should re~root for you...
(and possibly make it or force to do
some reshooting some side shoots for you...
then it won't be soooooo lanky either)
