    How do you rate this product?

    Ive had it a couple years now and it finally flowered for me!!! I was in store when I smelled the big plants so Ive been dying to get this thing to bloom. It flowered quite a lot too. And I really didnt do much, just gave it a chill and fertilized it when I remembered hahahha. It did great in my three season room under my michelia alba. Theyre so cute together (Posted on 10/2/2015)
