Blooming season: It blooms for many months, beginning in mid-spring.
Cultivation and Propagation: Rhombophyllum is a genus that require very little maintenance. In cultivation the Rhombophyllum do very well with the spring summer growing period during which they will be watered frequently and heads for winter dormancy.

Inside they grow fine on windowsills, and will even bloom, if they get enough direct sunlight.

LOVE it!

My experience was excellent! My little plant was packaged extremely well, with pebbles on top so the soil wouldn't fall out. Very little, if any, stress from shipping, and believe it or not, there's already a flower starting to shoot up!! I can't wait to stop by again.
