This one is a true treasure, and a must have for collectors.  This plant, along with intermedia, is dramatic about announcing its hydration level.  In drier conditions, the plant will form tight curls, and will straighten out and stretch with high humidity or frequent watering.  This plant is very susceptible to rot, so removing stagnant water is important for plant health
