The fun thing about these colorful plants is that they are so easy to root and share. Simply trim a top cutting with six inches or more of stem, remove the old leaves and put it in a flower vase near a window. While enjoying the indoor tropical colors, your new cutting should form roots in 6 weeks or so and will be ready to pot in a a couple months time. The growth rate of Sunny Star will vary greatly depending on soil type, sunlight, temperature and other factors. A few leaves are often trimmed prior to shipping to reduce transpiration and travel stress.
