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.

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.
