Josh and all,

I've had one for years.  It makes a leaf or two in some years, nothing at 
all in most years.  It has never bloomed, and it may well be dead now -- I 
have not dumped it out in the last several years.

I grow it (if that's what you want to call storing it in a dry pot for 
years at a time without visible growth) in a deep pot in nearly pure 
sand.  It sits outdoors in most summers and gets natural rain.  Some years 
it sits inside the greenhouse for the whole year.

I clearly don't know how to grow it.
