These plants are extremely hard to get conditions just right, not only for flowering, but growing....

I had them for 2 years, they never did flower, yet others on this site get them to grow wonderfully.
Hopefully they will come on a give you some suggestions?

Good Luck. :D

You are having fun resurrecting a bunch of old posts! This is another person who made a few posts in June and July then never came back. Who knows, if they have notifications set to tell them they got responses, maybe they will come back now! :)

I think some of these posts from this past summer that never got responses were from when the site went down for some weeks with a virus. By the time it came back up, the old ones were already a long time ago and there was a bunch of new stuff coming in. So some people got missed in there.
