    If you have been growing it for a year and have it in bud, then it would appear you are growing it correctly. I have never grown this species..

    I don't know, but if it is in bud, something must be working. I will have to google to see what this looks like in bloom. Be sure to post yours when it blooms too!!

    Cheers,
