Quick note from my experience with niveum, which grows very well for me, is that the plant DOESN'T like to be over potted. Your plant seems to be in a too big a pot. I learnt that very quickly. I keep mine in pots that appear too small but the plant likes it.
Very nice flower.

yes, i did put it in a rather large pot at that time... but there were 2 of them and i was growing them with some succulents in the same pot (now thinking of it, whatever made me do that??!!) craig, i'm too embarrased to post a 'now' pic... i guess i'll let it recuperate first... the problem is that the leaf bases turn brown and affects the whole growth. this happens even though i pot them 'higher' up, and not letting the growth touch the medium... happened to the other niveum too... :( must be the heavy rain...

The flower sure is pretty. I think niveums don't like to be kept wet -- that's what may be happening in that size pot.
