Thanks, Heather! So, you have a hybrid and not a species, so it actually may be a little easier to grow and bloom. It sounds like it was staying too wet and attracted those tiny pests. Did it come spiked or it spiked in your care? I wish mine would spike soon, I have never seen one in bloom.This masdie, Confetti (M. strobelii x M. glandulosa) - species of course, was purchased 4/24
Get a camera soon, I would love to see your plants.
