By my own admission I am rubbish at keeping house plants. I have two which defy my attempts to kill them and goodness knows how they survive. I was given a Gloxinia as a present a month ago and it had one bloom, two almost open and many buds. Since then I have kept it inside, out of direct sunlight and only watered when it felt dry - about once a week. The original bloom eventually went and the two others came and are just about gone but all the little buds have turned brown and gone.
Hubs says it was doomed from the start but I would love to rescue it. Any thoughts?
