    Thanks guys for you comments,

    I will for sure post update photos! I bought this one in june for around $ 60 also for having more than one growth and the guy who sold it to me just sent me these words:" i'm glad the helenae is bloomin again , just keep this plant as
    it is quite precious and now became rare"
    So, I will hopefully take care of it a bit more and no more neglect!
