Just put her in full sun. She will thank you by flowers. Do you keep her in a well drained soil? She needs it. Maybe you need to control water- reduce or increase watering.

Thanks for the advice. =) I mixed sand and potting mix in the dirt when i potted it up and it drains. I put the pot outside by a rose bush because I read that plants need shade for a week then I can put it in full sun. I think i kept it in my room too long and thats not very much light.

a blue Shrimp plant would look really kewl! Mine has white flowers.

My Shrimp plant grows and flowers anywhere. It blooms almost year round even in deep shade.

Life - Some assembly required, As is no warranty, Batteries not included, Instructions shipped separately and are frequently wrong!

Kentucky Bourbon - It may not solve the problem but it helps to make it tolerable!

Statistics - Data that analyst twist to support the insane opinions of those that pay them.

Lights are necessary for the plants. Here this plant require the drained kind of soil and it requires frequent watering so this are the main factors as per my opinion.

I don't think your shrimp plant needs full sun. Around here at my place they do well with morning sun and afternoon shade. I feed them twice weekly at 200 ppm which is like 1 t of miracle grow per gallon of water. They need a lot of water if they get rootbound, less when they're small.
