    This is my favorite plant that I own, and I was so stoked to see that it is putting on a new growth that I decided to take a pic to share. And if you guess what species it is... good for you. You don't get the plant.

    Thanks Forrest, credit goes to you and Jon, it started growing when I started dropping my nighttime temps like you suggested and, at the same time, when I changed my watering schedule like Jon suggested.
