Oh just saw that you're looking for advice on these 😁
Please excuse if I'm saying something you already know πŸ˜… these ones go dormant in the winter, so they might droop and drop its leaves. Many people think they're dead and throw them out. But you shouldn't. There are a few ways that you can help them overwinter so that they can come back in the spring. One way is to cut them back leaving just the bulbs underground or stored in a paper bag, then put in a dark, cool, dry place (like a basement). Plant them again in the spring. If you live somewhere warm or can create a little greenhouse for the plant indoor, it might not show signs of dormancy or just look slightly worse, you can just leave it be then. Obviously cut down on water during dormancy. No fertilizer, and always check for pests. Good luck!! πŸ€
Wow that's one bushy plant 🀩
So pretty! My only advice is to put it somewhere with indirect light. They can sunburn easily. They also like humidity.
Amazing plant. 🌿
@SportyBaybean thank you, but it’s actually two varieties put together πŸ™ˆ the one with the pink spots is actually quite bushy, but the white variety is only bushy from one angle πŸ€¦πŸ»β€β™€οΈ lol
@EagerPhlox Ahh, thank you! πŸ˜πŸ€— that’s very helpful!
