    I don't grow it any more, but I never figure that out. I finally gave up and found it a good home.

    I've bloomed it once, but can't say what I did to get it to bloom. It did not bloom the last two years. Perhaps it likes a drastic change in environment? I might try giving it a cold rest in the fall.

    First year I've been growing it with 58/72 F winters and 64/80-90 F summers. Constantly moist, lots of fertilizer. It grew like crazy but didn't bloom. Second year I tried to keep it drier in winter but at the same temperature. Stopped growing in winter but didn't bloom. So maybe cold a dry rest would really help? However, it would be very strange, since it comes from the place with constantly intermediate and wet conditions year round.
