Hope for these in Minnesota?

We brought these back from HI in FEB 2005, they grew a bunch of leaves during the 2005 summer, all fell off during winter and this is what we have now in APR 2006. Are the pots big enough? what kind of growth might I expect this year? Blooms and smells seem so far away at this point...

You need to get those outside during the summer this year. Since they are in small pots, take them out now when the weather is in the high 50's and bring them in at night. Then once above 50 in the night, leave them out all summer. To get them to bloom they need to grow more and have more sunshine time.

I would take the plates out from under your pots. Plummies don't like their feet in standing water. They only like to drink when they have dry mouth.LOL

For what it's worth get them out of the clay pots. They're roots will stick to the sides of the clay pots,plastic is much better. They look fine. Don't get them too wet.

My first thought was what Mickey stated. Get them out of those clay pots. They seem to like the cheap plastic ones. Plus don't have the plates underneath, good advice also. Lots of sunshine and only water them when they get really thirsty.
