It is a wonderful plant, just a tad too large for windowsill growing.

You got a point.

Might even keep the deer out of the back yard.

I have a clump of den. ‘Gatton Sunray’. It was in the ground, in 80% sun and flowered profusely. Some friends wanted a Keiki each, but it would not chuck out any babies. I relocated it to an area of late afternoon sun and it throws kiekies all the time. Must relocate the clump again as I now have a hundred, or so, babies planted insoil all over my garden.

besides the row of plants by my screen enclosure in earlier post, I had a monster plant in 16 inch pot on eastern exposure of house in FULL SUN and it was in bloom at 6-7 months of year without any sunburn issues and the old canes threw up as many keiki's as I wanted....
This is truly a special plant, only downside is that flowers last only about a week or so, BUT plants get big enough to throw up multiple spikes fairly quickly so bloom season can be extended.

Oh wow, spectacular!
I would be interested in a keiki if any Aussie of the growers have one spare.
