So envious yours is thriving. I planted one in my fernery. It sulked for about a year then vanished without trace.

Love the colour of this. Does it need special conditions?

Thanks, Wagger, I think this is another for the wish list.

I saw these in a florist's shop in Germany at the beginning of a two week holiday - couldn't pass them up at three euros for two plants. Then had to look after them for the rest of the holiday. lol.

I read that the more sun it gets the more silver the leaves, but beware a pot I moved into the hot sun a couple of weeks ago were scorched brown.
Once you have a plant it splits up very easy best when it first starts growing in spring

I find it keeps its colour well in a shady spot, Bjs.

Yes mine do, however last year with a lack of sunshine my plants in shade were more grey not the usual silver hence the experiment.
