Just saw your pictures, sorry. They are all beautiful. I'm crazy about mine even though bloom time is rather short.
DH bought me a deep red one, but somehow I managed to kill it.

Thank you Pandora, this forum is a little slow.

They seem to like to be a bit dry at certain times and moist at others. I think I finally got a handle on that they like dry after blooming for couple of months then start to water. They seemed to rot if I watered after they bloomed. I give them just a sip of water all winter.

Yep, most of the forums are slow this time of year. That is a great tip about the watering.
I think I do so well with them because I forget about them often and they get to dry out a bit.
But when they bloom they get my attention and I probably tend to water them more. I'll be
more careful now. :)
I hope I find a red star shaped one again and try this new approach.

Thanks,
