Plant bloomed twice for me since I received it as a gift, once in mid July, and again late August to early September. I was advised to give it plant food (30-15-15 or 20-20-20) with every watering through the summer, did that and misted it too during the extreme heat. It needs to be pruned now, it is quite tall. I had it in part shade- filtered sunlight outside on my patio.
