I think monty said to leave plant alone taking off  leaves that turned yellow and it will pick it self up in no time(watch gardeners world as I might be wrong).My friend who lived in the country where this lovely plant grows informs me it grows like a weed over there.

don't grow them in rich soil ,seed compost or non compost soil from your garden. don't over water and thin out and re-pot regularly and make sure they do not get to hot and have the right amount of sunlight ,turn pots as well.
