i never had good luck with av's when i kept them in spots that got only indirect light. there'd be some growth and never any flowers
then i moved to another apt and got the urge to try again. put it in the west facing window - direct bright light most of the afternoon and that lil sucker grew and bloomed like crazy!! constantly in bloom.
then i moved into my house and my dad, so kindly, left all the plants
in the van overnight (went down to 20) so, that was that.
couple years later someone gave me another av...then a couple months later, one of my boss' decided to sell their house and by a houseboat. his wife asked if i wanted her plant
stand (they didn't have room at their other house for it).
THAT is the best thing that could have happened (i only have one west-facing window that gets good light as the house next door blocks it).
that av was actually 4 plants
in one pot. i split them out into 4 seperate pots - all of them self-watering type - and i have them on the plant
stand. i have the light set for about 10 hours on.
they do tremendously!!! they're always blooming!
the self-watering pots are a real must-have for the av's. and enough light is needed so that they will bloom.
