For general infomation try
This will give you some general advice on growing these plants. In
order to help you further, however, I need more info about the plant
How big was it?
How dry was the compost?
How healthy did it look?
Was it very draughty / dry at the show?
How are you currently growing it?
It sounds as if the plant got too dry / cold at the show! If you now
treat them reasonably, they should recover. Try repotting them,
ensuring you remove any dead material.
