This is one of my favorite houseplants ever. It needs very little care and constantly blooms the most vividly pink and purple colored flowers. The leaves will start to droop when it needs water, other than that I don't do anything special to it other than a feeding every once in awhile. It's ever grown a baby off the base of the stem which has flowered. Does anyone have any detailed instructions on how I can propagate?
