I'd say that's pretty well if you notice that when I got this plant it had only two leaves and one tuber. It tried to flower for me but then I over watered it and the flowerstalk rot away.

Spring coming to Finland too and temperatures are slowly going up. I think I can start ordering plants in following few weeks if the temperatures keep rising so that we will not have frost during night.
