I recently moved it to a window that faces East. The area it was in before faced North, but I can't see any difference. I would like for it to recover and bloom, but so far there are only the little leaves.
    Does it need fertilizer?

    They seem finicky to me. dH had them when we got married decades ago, and still has a couple, but he doesnt take care of them.
