Thanks !! Mine looks crummy . But only had her a short time so maybe she just needs more time to grow. @lovestogarden

Have you found she likes water ? Or more on dry side ? Encyclopedia says dry but I know sometimes it depends on the climate etc

I bought her for her colors not realizing how tall she gets, but I'm happy with her. It just means more color. @natii @ShelleySnyder

@sherrisgarden, I bought her two years ago or so and kept her in a narrow but tall pot. She probably was kept damp then dried out in between. Now she is in the ground and is fine having all that rain water. I think try flooding and then dry out might be the trick.

She was outgrowing her pot, so I decided it was time to let her do her thing. Planted in the ground 02/21/2018. #rootbound #planted #succulent #synadeniumcompactum #rubrum #africanmilkbush

Yep @ShelleySnyder . I am hoping the bright pink will help the plants pop (once they get larger). ❤

She has gorgeous #foliage colors. Too bad her #container did not last long, thought it was a good match. #variegated #succulent #Synadeniumcompactum #rubrum
