    Very nice! I wonder if they like being pot-bound--mine is showing no sign of blooming since I divided it.

    "Holy haberdashery, Batman!" What great growing.

    That's quite an impressive plant, Julie. And I thought mine was pretty good sized....although I'm in the same boat as Ron, mine hasn't wanted to bloom. Hopefully this spring it will though..!

    Hi all... thanks for the comments. Regrettably, I can't take credit for the size of this plant--I'm just relieved that I have not killed it! I got it at auction for a ridiculously low price last fall (no one wanted it!). It was growing in a greenhouse prior... Now it is in an east windowsill (intermediate to cool). Not sure how I got it to bloom. I gave it bloom booster fertilizer (half strength) each week during January. And I rotate the plant 1/4 turn every week.
