That's gorgeous. And I can even see your B&Q albomarginata in the background :D

Well grown!

You certainly can. It has started to grow a bit faster now the warmer weather is here.

How do you grow yours again?

In an undrained clear plastic container, which I flood and allow the levels to fall a little before topping up. To be honest, I am a little lapse with my watering schedule for this plant, so there's a good chance that at times it gets very dry before getting watered. I have it under 70W metal halide lighting, which is on for 14hours/day. I don't know what triggers flowering, but it has flowered at roughly the same time of year for a few years now.
