two or three at a time! Should I replant to a larger pot? When I first got this plant it had lovely blooms but after a month or so they wilted and none have bloomed since. It hated the sun so it now gets overhead lighting most of the day and evening. I welcome your suggestions.

    It is likely planted in a mix that has too much nitrogen or not enough phosphorus and potassium. High nitrogen feeds, or soil will prevent flowering, and cause it to only grow leaves. You will have to offset this by adding phosphorus and potassium.
