Do mist the leaves regularly to keep the humidity there.

If not, a dry environment will attract lotsa mites to your plant!

My two pots from Germany, went through lots of changes. It came with this fat caterpillar that caused quite a damage that I had to cut away most leaves. Seeing that there wasn't much growth in the balcony, I transferred them to a fish tank. Leaves grew and grew but still no flowers.

Now I had them under direct sunlight in the garden. Initally the leaves couln't take it, they go limp and had to be rescue. Over a period of few weeks, new leaves are coming and 3 flowers bud coming up. :D/> Looks like yellow flowers to me.

They are perennials and need a few hours of direct sun to grow and bloom well.
