'Mature' Hippeastrum Bulbs/Plants
I would like to know, what, if any, changes in growth characteristics, one can expect to see, as a bulb reaches the "mature'" stage.
For example, I noticed in most of the full-view photos of these plants, that Hipps. produce very long, rank-looking leaves. Are these long leaves a characteristic of a young plant? Will the leaves growing from a MATURE BULB shorten a bit in length, and stiffen up a little, so as to be almost self-supporting, forming a nice fan-shaped profile,...almost, Clivia-like in appearance? I know growing in bright light conditions makes for shorter, thicker leaves on Clivia, but will this cultural practice also carry over into the Hipp. tribe, with similar results, as well?
