I had seeds for one once but it didn't grow of course it didn't help he kept stepping on them(he not much of a sober fella) but I love these plants;wish I had one that did as well as yours.

it was fine untill the flower died and that lasted ages but when the flower died so did the rest of the plant. i have no idea why though

How long did the flower last?
It looks as if it may have been in your living room? They need bright light and high levels of humidity.
