I expected someone else to reply too.
I have had a largish pot of Weldenia candida for ~10 years or so. It has
been split a couple of times and distributed elsewhere, but apart from
some frost protection and a dryish winter, it has had no special
treatment. General purpose well drained soil based compost, more or less
as I use for alpines. Commercial compost+extra grit+maybe some extra
organic, such as composted bark. It is an attractive plant early in the
season before the leaves grow too much, but gets a bit leggy later on,
although that could be because I neglect it and don't give it enough
light. It repeat flowers for many weeks.
