This bloomed for a long time for my mother, but she left me with just the greens. They don’t seem to have a lot more life left in them, it’s going to be tough to rescue.

I received this as a gift and within a week I lost its flower stem and had to prune back and start fresh. She’s starting to re-bud now but it’s taken forever. Not much of a giver for the work you put in to her lol

Hard to get to rebloom. Constant risk of over watering and mold.
