Whew! That does seem like a TON of work! I had one, never returned to red, but I kept it alive for 3 years!! Leaves fall off, then new ones would appear in the spring... My old boss hated them, and wanted to throw them out. I couldn't let that happen!

Finally showing new growth after I drastically cut off the red leaves 😊 Now I think at some point I have to put it in a cupboard before Xmas 😂 I'll research more later
