Lovely flower. I have one in lavender. Do you mean absolutely no water or fertilizer? That concept is so foreign to me. Doesn't the plant shrivel up and die? As I said I have one that has just started to put out flower buds and I held back on water, watering only when bone dry. These are the first buds I've gotten in 4 yrs, maybe too much water is the reason it hasn't bloomed before? What do you think?
