Yeppers. I got one close to a year ago and keep it near a South window in my kitchen. It simply has not stopped blooming since day 1. It does seem to be a bit touchy on watering - one of these days I will get it down pat. Big Grin

David what I've done with mine, finally, is put the whole potted plant in a container that doesn't have drainage. I put a few pebbles in the bottom and keep it filled with water, until it gets a bit cold (like now) I still water it, just not to the same degree. I don't have this particular plant but I've been treating all my gesnariads in this way and they seem to like it!
Thumbs up I tip my hat to you.

Thank You! Interesting suggestion Greg. I may give that a try. I do that with my orchids.

You're welcome David - I just read your 'quote' love it! Partly why I first started with this current batch of plants was because I had a corner that needed a live plant, based on the Fung Shui book that I have - well now it has many live plants! Thumbs up Hilarious!

Hurray!

I picked up on Feng Shui when I started on Bonsai. Otherwise, I would have gone nuts. Or at least more so, Green Grin!

No. I just started 2 years ago and am growing all my stuff from seed. Maybe in another year or so.
