I got this as a gift and followed the directions. At the end of the season after it’s beautiful leaves started to droop I cut them back and set the bulb aside to dry out so I could have it flower again. This crazy thing started to grow again on its own in the dark! So I repotted it and now I’m letting it do it’s own thing on its own schedule. I named him Gene Simmons because he stuck his tongue out at my schedule.
