@clvrmnky: perhaps change te soil? or a tiny bit of fertilizer....?

Yeah, I'm going to replant/repot at the end of the "growing" season and see what happens after it goes back into stasis.

@clvrmnky: I have read that those plants need little water and the right way to water them is to wait for the soil to dry (almost) and only then put water again, but the soil has to be very runny so water don't pond and the plant does not 'drown'

@Osmar Duran, they respond well to good watering once they are dry through their growing period (as you say) and then letting them basically dry out totally during their rest period. Mine has flowered a few times, but this season it just seemed to give up.

I have another one that is doing better.
