hard to get to grow

I tried to start many times. Only one out of several I ordered from two companies did not survive. Don't know what went wrong but I am disappointed and may not plant again. I thought they were just beautiful and wanted them badly.

This plant looked very poor when we got it.

I was very disappointed with this cute looking plant. I died within the first week of planting it. I contacted the company, but because I didn't have my reciept, was told too bad.

One of four survived

Of the 4 I purchased only one survived. The leaves on the lone surviver are growing slowly but look healthy.
