Never flowered though huge, perhaps next year?

"Thank you for your review. Yes these should flower next year as they haven't this year."

I was a little disappointed with how they had been packed - they were very delicate plants and somehow some of the leaves had been stuck down in the packaging and stems had become broken which was a shame but they did recover and are now strong plants hopefully will flower next year
