What I like so much about this P. primulaflora is that it is so easy and reliable. I have had it for years in a North facing basement window in a sealed plastic container (you can see it in the background). The window is cool in the winter and mild in the summer. It gets bright daylight. Every month or so, I take the water that condenses on the bottom and pour it into the plastic bowl it grows in. Peat/sand mix. Occasionally I pull the dead leaves/scapes off. It grows small leaves in the winter when it flowers for months, 3-4 at a time. In the summer the leaves get bigger and I feed it some freeze dried blood worms. Once a year, it gets leggy and I clean it off and put it lower into the same soil. A cute plant that seems to go on forever.
