Maniji,
Nice photo. The red form of the species is also quite beautiful. You
should try growing this one. It's beautiful when it becomes a big
specimen plant.

Prejith.

Thanks Prejith ji for the compliments.   I had one sent by a friend from Kanyakumari, but it died presumably due to the Mumbai heat.
Regards,
Mani.
