Coworkers threw this poor little one in the trash after it spent it’s blooms. Have been able to nurse it back to health and accidentally re-potted it semi-cascade haha! Always love it playing nurse and seeing plants bounce back.

Indeed. Had just finished watching The Tomorrow War (movie) so needed a bit of darkness. They’re back up to 100% efficiency

Do you know what color it is? My white one was in flower on a first stem from January until June. The last flower finally died out 2 days before stem number 2 opened its first flower! I don't think it's quite strong enough to bloom year round yet...but it's close!

Typically, the more reds in the flower of that species, the faster the die out :(

I couldn't watch The Tomorrow War without wanting to buy insurance ;) (JK Simmons)

Wish I had seen its blooms before it got thrown out but alas the spike was all brown so no idea :(
Hope yours keeps on giving !
Yeah, Simmons was great in it! And quite the buff guy (compared to whiplash, et. al.)

I keep a few at my office at work in an eastern exposure window. They are almost always blooming. When one flower spike is done, they quickly throw another one.
