    Well, I cheated and bought it in spike. Since then I kind of grow it s/h. I have a really dry area that it is in so I keep a saucer with a half inch of water in it under the plant. It does sit in the water. I do let it go dry every once in a while though. I have been feeding it every 2 or 3 weeks.

    A long time. (That is unless you let the plant dry out too much.)

    You should use that as a centerpiece on your diningroom table at meal time.
