Still alive but unproductive

This plant has produced many leaves at its base but no stems and flowers. It is planted in a pot with nutritional soil.
Now 5 months later, this is how it looks--healthy but not as advertised.

slow to grow

Arrived in good condition. Planted 1 month now and appears healthy but showing no signs of new growth.

It’s still alive but has not grown much

It was quite torn up during shipping and loaded with fungus gnats. The cardinal plants recovered much faster and have grown. This one is just holding on. Hopefully it will start growing soon.
