    Intermediate grower. A generous bloomer but the flowers only last a week.

    Hey Tom, do you have any tips on how to get this one to bloom? Our plant has pretty much trippled in size but no blooms! It's in bright light and intermediate conditions, days in the upper 70's maybe 80 occasionally and nights around 60.

    Zach, try to cool it off a little bit more at night, 55-58F.

    Just a note, the flowers will last significantly longer if they don't get wet often, perhaps up to four weeks.
