Dear David,

I had a similar experience recently. I lost the growth point of a fairly large plant (the "trunk" is about 5.5 feet tall). This was due to a fungus of some kind that I didnt catch fast enough. The plant also has but out bunches of "offsets" at the base. (Which it does from time to time anyway) It grows quite vigorously here in Florida. I use them as large landscape accent plants.

I am surprised however, that you say they arent cultivated in your area commonly...here they are sold at numerous nurseries, usually for stupidly overpriced amounts of money....but nonetheless, they are very available.
