    Bought in spring - After flowering the stem started to yellow, I cut it down but it seems to still be yellowing- is this normal? Should I do anything?

    I'd cut it off close to the base of the plant, its obviously not going to flower again from that stem.

      Oh no

      did I do something wrong?

      will a new stem grow and flower?

      You didn't do anything wrong.

      The plant will eventually put up another flowering stem if you keep it growing.

      It might be a few months though.
