    Warm, but not too much light. The leaves must stay dark green!!

    Elegantly beautiful - how do you grow this in terms of medium?

    Gilles, this old thread popped up in the random attachments section and I just saw that you say "not too much light". I have seen them in Guinea on small trees and in the dry season they were exposed to direct sun the whole day .I have it for seven or eight years now and it grows but no flowers. Since last summer it has a little bud, but it doesn't develop into anything. I always thought that mine never flowers because it doesn't get enough light, but when I put it out in the sun at home it got sun burned in the first day... The next thing I'll try is not giving it any more water untill it flowers, but so far it never seemed to be resting (on its own, at least).

    In fact, in my greenhouse it receives a lot of lights only during summer, and no direct sun at all during winter because my greenhouse is behind my house...
    Maybe it would prefer to receive more light but I can't give it more....
