I'm confused on how to know if a clem is supposed to be pruned or not?
I have Rebecca, Proteus and Asao.
The Rebecca "died" and I just kept watering it and finally it had a little growth come up. It is in a pot right now and has had 2 blooms on it on new foliage.
I have another in a pot and I don't know who it is because they are mixed up. But either proteus or Asao I think. Anyway it died down, and regrew new stuff and so far no blooms. It is a small plant though. I don't know if it has no blooms because it is small and moody, lol, or because all the foliage is new?
