Looks a bit like one of those traffic light cocktails, complete with straw!

I'm sorry @coronat I haven't got it any more I gave it my neighbour as it was failing with me but I have seen it in a winter garden and it was much the same as yours maybe pinch out there too and see if that helps but I really don't know

@coronat one thing i can say is they don't like dry heat and if all the foliage falls it does grow back

Hmm @slj my apartment is warm and dry so maybe I should mist daily? How did u kill yours out of interest?

I had one that had been passed down from my nana to my mum to me and it died it had an accident when I moved 😢many years ago now, so I found these on Amazon they have them on eBay too, I hunted everywhere for the best place and Amazon seemed it to me @christony as I know the nursery is good and I will defiantly be posting lots of pics as the grow and flower 😊 I'm also waiting for some seeds to grow some more too 😊
