I've got a second bloom coming up. I had this on the windowsill right above a baseboard heater and it seemed to really love the extra heat.

I received this from a friend today, any advice on perking it up?

Hope your moses is doing good. I know these guys thrive in humid places. If you are in a dry place, misting the leaves would probably help. I was able to root cuttings in water and have a couple more now.

@porias It definitely perked up! I have it on a big south facing window, right above a baseboard heater, and it seems to be enjoying the warmth. It just recently put out 2 flowers. It's quickly becoming one of my favorites. =)
