Easy plant to grow. Flowers on every new growth which mature at different times so there's always spikes and flowers.

Well, yes, an easy plant to grow.

HOW do you get it to BLOOM???
THAT is the question.

Yours is beautiful and very like mine own. I just tore them apart, hoping for this type of comeback.
Please, if anything has worked consistantly for you, I would LOVE to know!!

thanks cena. I'm not sure, its just such an easy plant to grow. Very vigorous, always gowing and I really neglect this plant. Maybe that's the trick, forget you have it. I don't know what zone you are in, I grow it cool in winter, dry between water (its a big drinker) and I have it potted in med. bark with perlite. It can take a lot of sun in summer when it makes many growths which flower over the winter. This is a division from my larger plant which I split up last spring.

Obviously happy! Mine is just now sending out new growths, rather late?
