I sort of have it. I made the mistake of moving it off a driftwood,and put it where..I just didnt water enough and most of it died. What's left is now on a palm in part shade. It's going to be years before it again looks large.
I've been told the red fruit are sweet and edible...watch for spines!

Thanks for everyone's comments :)

I have never tried eating the berries Stan, they don't look very appetizing. I hope yours grows a bit more next year. Mine is in a pot and I only water it about once a week or even less ...

Don't know how I managed to miss this photo, it is so lovely, has a kind of misty effect.
