    I have two of these, but they are not in bloom. Is it blooming time for them now? Mine keep growing roots and leafs, but no blooms yet. One has also grown a new plant. Are there any tricks to make them bloom?

    Very nice! Love their fragrance! Mine bloom around June - July

    Jesus, I keep mine in fairly bright light close to 3000 fc They like to be kept cool in the winter months, with less water and fertilizer

    Thank you Ron. Does that mean they could be left outside for winter? Here normal winter lows are about 5º C, with some occasional frost (perhaps two to three nights in a row, two or three times per winter). I still have them outside in brighter light than in summer right now. I got them in May but they haven't bloomed yet. Perhaps they were not adult plants yet?

    Jesus it can tolerate temps around 5 Celsius but I wouldn't allow it to get below that.

    OK, thanks ron. When temperatures go below that, I'll take them inside.
