I purchased this plant and promptly forgot about it , it hung on and when I saw that it was a stick with a few leaves I repotted it in a medium sized Terra cotta pot and put it in half sun. It rewarded me with strong growth and lots of new leaves which are not particularly pretty. That year it bloomed once and the flowers are beautiful . The following year it bloomed four times and is now a sturdy plant . It has been a cold Winter for us in Southern California but it has already flowered in January. I think that it might be able to stand more sun so am going to move the pot just a little this year .
It's well worth finding , I had to special order another one.
