    My cuttings root well, and grow straight and tall, but if you clip me, I branch extensively, and develop a strong trunk with bark. I drink lots of water, but also survive drought very well. I bleed a gooey white blood when I am trimmed. I like a sunny windowsill, and turn quickly towards the sun if you move me. But I don't have a name. Can you help?

    You're a very pretty plant. Because of the white goo I tend to agree with Eileen, but I'm not certain.
