Since then, it has bloomed three more. Beautiful flowers, big leaves. I recommend." –NYCGirl

Added some rhinestone bling to the exterior of the pot the plant came with, and threw in a few sparkly rocks on top of the rocks the plants came with. Kept the ones our guests did not take, and they continue to do well with little-to-no maintenance." –Christie
