I placed a photo of this bloom in the database on the first of January
I just took this photo when I put the plant outside for the summer
that is four and a half months

Thumb of 2016-05-17/gardengus/e7a44b

Is that normal or maybe just because it was inside?

This plant is not hardy here so I grow it as a house plant.

So pretty! I finally got one and am impatiently waiting for it to grow up and bloom for me.
"The Universe speaks in many languages, but only one voice. It speaks in the language of hope; It speaks in the language of trust; It speaks in the language of strength, and the language of compassion. It is the language of the heart and the language of the soul. But always, it is the same voice. It is the voice of our ancestors, speaking through us, And the voice of our inheritors, waiting to be born. It is the small, still voice that says: We are one. No matter the blood; No matter the skin; No matter the world; No matter the star; We are one. No matter the pain; No matter the darkness; No matter the loss; No matter the fear; We are one. Here, gathered together in common cause. we agree to recognize this singular truth, and this singular rule: That we must be kind to one another, because each voice enriches us and ennobles us, and each voice lost diminishes us. We are the voice of the Universe, the soul of creation, the fire that will light the way to a better future. We are one."

How big is your plant? I have very small ones and a bigger one - they are in pots and overwinterd in the garage.

It's normal for it to keep on blooming as long as you're giving it enough light, warmth and water/fert. Way to go!

They grow and bloom here for 9 or 10 months of the year, take a rest when we get some cold nights in January, then resume in March or so.
