Answer: It's more likely that they suffer shock. Many flowering plants from florists just don't do well in the home environment, because they are coddled and forced in a greenhouse with "perfect" conditions. They are sometimes treated with a growth retardant to keep them compact. These plants are usually considered as "throwaways" after they finish blooming. If you want to try, it takes full sun to bright light, needs to be kept evenly moist, prefers some humidity, warm to normal room temperatures, and should be fed with a fertilizer higher in phosphorus than nitrogen (the middle number). Good luck!
