    How long does the stem grow to, exactly? And if I put one into a classic terrarium (soil on the bottom, not pots) would it just be ok for it to trail along the ground?

    it doesn't take too long- I have only grown it from cuttings, but the stem starts pretty much as soon as it starts growing, haven't observed any sort of basal rosette action or anything...
    as for the "triling along the ground" thing, I'm sure it's fine, mine just flopped over once they got maybe 4-5 inches high and are now 2 long, dead-looking scrambling stems with the actual growth points a few inches aay from the pot... I plan on re-rooting the "tips" and chopping the brown stem into cuttings eventually as per advice I read here

    The 1 I have came with the stem broken, It was only 2 or 3 nodes tall, so I just buried the whole thing, leaving leaves at each node above the soil, Now I have 2 plants growing one is starting it's 3rd node, the other is starting the 2nd.

    Mine came to me ~18 months ago as seedlings from Copper. There were 3 plants and after ~6 months those plants died, while new ones sprang up alongside. During this summer, those replacements grew vertically to ~4", but never flowered. During the fall, they flopped over and are now horizontal, with the oldest growth now being brown and the newest being green. I will probably either sever or bury the stems, as has been suggested in another topic. Here's a picture, taken this fall:
