Actually, I'm very excited about this plant. I'd had it on my wish list and finally purchased one. I might nestle it with my slipper plant that's planted in the front garden. I just noticed that both plants are members of the Euphorbiaceae family, and both are hardy to Zone 9A (20F). I wonder if I should risk it and plant the sticks on fire... There are a couple microclimates on my property that stay warmer than others. Thoughts?
