You've got "Grandfathers Pipe" there. Give that bugger some full sun and see the differance. Turns a great mottled green and purple color. Leave it outside next summer if you don't have a full sun window for winter

I'm not sure what you have but it appears to be trying to escape the pot. I wonder if you can root the dangling bits like spider plants.

Thanks guys! Grandfathers pipe, wow a cool name to boot. Yea I had it on the porch this summer, and it got morning sun, next year I'll put it in full sun.

I know the escapees want to be planted. I think I'll be offering some cuttings and needed to know it's name.

I've always called it the basket plant and the little ones root very easy.

Didn't know that it bloom with scented flowers, I will be looking forward to that, had mine about 3 years, very large now. Just maybe mine is not getting enough sun either, going to try another spot.

There she is~Sherri! Look at how great she is doing, I love this plant, easy to grow, very hardy and the babies root very fast. I had one get too close to another pot and it rooted itself~

Jeremy1130 were you asking callanh or me for a pup?
