This plant is easy to maintain. Put 4 ice cubes in the pot and that’s all you need to do. Do not put in full light it will burn the plant.

this plant was pretty but the flowers died fairly quick and the leaves tend to brown quick even when taken good care of

Grows VERY slow and I’ve never gotten it to bloom again once the first ones died off.
