Many many years ago my parents gave hubs and I a happy plant as a wedding anniversary gift. After a few months of living on our dining room table the poor plant was anything but happy. It was looking very miserable with brown drooping leaves - I am sure from overwatering - so it was moved out into a semi-shaded position in the garden to fend for itself and given the odd splash of water in between rain showers. Last week when I was doing a bit of gardening to my surprise I noticed that it had flowered after all these years.
After a quick search on the "net" I found that it not many flower and when they do it has taken up to 25 years or more for some to do so. I also read that once they flower they die. Oh no after all this time I would hate for that to happen. I will return to that website and read up a bit more to see if there is something that I can do to save my happy plant otherwise I will not be happy.
Back soon and in the meantime
