Total death.
Once I requested in a post if any member has a plant older than three years? there was no affirmative answer.
Thank God they are easy to grow from tip cuttings.

Blooms best when facing sun. I have four plants at home, one in ground and three in large pots for close study. May be I will get to know what kills them.

Seven out of eight have rooted and are about a foot tall, I have decided to donate them to the club, and would soon be taking some more tip cuttings.
