    I got one of these last year with only 1 bloom, this year I really thought mine was dead and was going to give it a nice burial, at the last minute I decided to save it and look for another one, I now have 5 buds, 4 of which are now open but I am waiting for the 5th to open to take a picture.

    So unique, aren't they! Lovely bloom! I just bought one of these without flowers in March and it was a sorry looking specimen and I didn't hold out much hope for it but it's now started to bloom and I hope I will get a few flowers as some of the buds have died in the heat!

    Congrats on the acquisition Sriram. I've had mine for 3 years and no sign of blooming.

    It requires a dormancy and cooler night temperature to initiate buds. I have read that some people move it indoors in AC during winters to give that additional temperature drop
