    Nice!

    Never have been able to get mine to bloom. Figure I'll see if I can trade a couple of them off this spring.

    Pavel, I'm suprised it doesn't bloom for you! Mine is over wintered indoors about 2 feet from a flourescent fixture, and goes out when night time temps stay in the 50's. It gets full morning sun and dappled afternoon shade. When the roots burst the plastic pot, it's time to move it up one or two sizes of pot. Let's see, I got mine as a little sprout about 8 inches high...in 1980. It is currently in a 10 inch pot with lots of babies. I will seperate them come spring.

    That's a fantastic plant. It's really odd, as I have seen these about in windows locally and thought they are really nice, but have never known what they are and now I do.

    Goodness me, how did I live before the forum????

    Mine are over 7 years old -- started from seed. I suspect I'm simply unable to give them the cooling they need in my apt.

    Pavel, they also need to be pot bound. If those roots aren't tightly packed into the pot, they are not happy.
