This plant is usually sold as a Christmas plant so I don’t know if others keep it as all year round as a houseplant. The leaves grow insanely fast and so tall that I have to cut them and next thing I know there’s a new leaf sprouting. I have never been able to get this to bloom after the initial bloom when I bought it. It is a bulb plant so I might not be doing something right because I’ve never done a bulb plant as a houseplant before
