BTW, those purple spots are just normal in plants that got good light. Not all of them present that but some do, especially those with purple/red/orange/yellow flowers.

Try to find who the vendor is, take a picture of the whole plant and another of the flowers (close up) and ask them.

Phap leeanum - When is its repot time

Hello, my friends

This specie has a growth cycle that I never understood clearly.
It seems to be growing constantly.
One thing I'm sure: when it blooms.
So, when should I do it?

Thank you
