How do you rescue one which has had all its flowers drop off?? Apparently they're easy enough to revive if they seem dead, but hard to look after in general?

I haven't been over watering it, and left it on a table in front of a window to get natural light... Any ideas oh wise ones?

I watched a youtube video, where she was quite brutal: took it out of the pot, binned all the potting bark, trimmed all the roots, then re-potted it with fresh bark.

So I did that and got some plant food, and it's done fabulously with 3x more flowers than ever before!

Oh good grief, that is harsh!

Ok, will try that, thanks!
