Stepelia Swelling

Things are starting to change

 The upper bud is swelling
 As is the lower one.
 But notice that all the rest are shrinking away.
I wonder why.  Did it need more water? More light? or does the plant just pict the biggest and strongest?
The last time it bloomed there was only one flower but the plant was about half the size.  It only consisted of the part that you see inside the smaller blue planter that sits in the middle of the larger  terra cotta one.
