We have this plant for over five years, but it never bloom though it is beautiful by being green all year round.

Profilic bloomer, long-lasting bright flowers, bushy growing habit, very easy to grow and propagate. Mine is over 5 y.o. and always looks cheerful, definitely worth growing.

This is not a ultra tender house plant. Mine has spent two winters outdoors in the S.F. bay area including a brief dip to below 32. These are cloudforest plants that do well along our coastal areas and coastal valleys with the protection of a tree or overhang. They prefer filtered sunlight and can be in flower anytime of the year.
