Hello bigsweirguru and gardengirl6,
Bigsweirguru, good for you for persevering, it's always more fun that way. Your plant needs low light in summer (it will be burnt by direct sunlight) and strong light in winter. It wants humidity and would like you to mist its leaves regularly. Stand it on a tray of pebbles which you keep wet so that as the water evaporates, it surrounds your plant with humid air. The compost should be rich in organic matter, but free-draining. The leaves will flop when it needs water. You should always keep it warm, a bathroom could get too cold but it does depend where it is. Propagation is done by division, as you have done. Looking at your pot, the compost looks a little stale, so top dress it with fresh compost and add a little slow release fertiliser to your top dressing. Take care with feeding because it can burn the leaves. Over-feeding promotes leaf growth at the expense of flowers. (This is probably why yours didn't flower gardengirl6). If you have added slow-release fertiliser to the top dressing that should be enough for the next few months. I would be tempted to cut off the darker leaves in your picture, they look as though they're on the way out, but the light green ones look healthy.
Good luck both of you,
