Couldn't resist when I was out plant shopping yesterday; isn't she pretty? There was no identifying tag with name or care instructions. My first time with this particular plant but I don't think they are difficult to keep happy? Any tips on their care is appreciated. Thank You!

I agree, beautiful flower! I hope you find the answers you're looking for! I wish I could help, but I don't know about that type of plant yet.

I've had a couple. They grew super on my light shelf over winter, basement, then when they set buds, I brought them to my bedroom and they bloomed for weeks. But I fried them in summer. All my plants go outside, and I didn't leave any inside, or I'd forget them completely.
Mine died from summer heat, or maybe mealybugs, I think I recall finding mealies down in the crown, hard to get at.
But when conditions are good they can do very well!
