Gloxinia rebounds - again

My gloxinia has put forth new leaves yet again. The last few times has been very difficult as it'd be attacked almost instantly by the white pest and die back again before any flowers could bud. It also took a long time to regenerate this time and I thought it really had died this time. I gave up and put it out on my other deck where it got enough water during the rainy season and suddenly put forth new leaves again! I instantly hit it with lots of chilli pesticide when I was also doing the others and I've given it an organic plant food spray. So fingers crossed...
