I got one approx. that same size about 3 years ago and it still didn't bloom.
I think your plant is too young to bloom. Give it, maybe, 3 or 4 more years (that's my oppinion:)).

Right!:)



The reason why they're so difficult to erradicate is because they are blown by the wind.
One can kill them all and get them again just by opening a window (especially in dry weather).

I use coco chips to keep moisture inside the medium. Instead of sphagnum, that keeps a lot of moisture (too much if you aren't careful, it keeps a lot less more manageable level.

Did you bought it or picked it?
Using collected coco, in beaches, is not a good idea because of the salt.

My lower temps are around 0 C to 5C. This lasts for 2 months, at least. Occasionally, it gets bellow freezing.
If you put them in a sheltered place, away from the wind and with minimum watering.
