Difficulty Growing Shamrock Plant

I have a maroon shamrock that I cannot grow. I keep it in a well lit place. It will do beautiful, and then it goes crazy and dies.

Keep the soil slightly moist to keep this plant happy.  Fertilize growing plants with a dilute solution of any flowering houseplant fertilizer.  It is normal for these plants to go dormant for a short period.  Reduce watering frequency as the leaves start to yellow and dry.  Place the plant in a cool dark location until new growth begins.  Then bring it back into the sunlight, start watering and enjoy the show.
