New hippi's received! Several questions....
I just got my order from Scheeper's--one bulb each of Picotee, Lemon/Lime, and Dancing Queen. Yay! I want to get these on a 'normal' bloom cycle as quickly as I can, so here's my question: shoud I keep them growing through the coming summer ('10), or can I safely force them to go dormant after 2-3 months of growth, to resume growth in May 2010?
I usually try to get seeds from my plants, so that will be a limiting factor. Should I try instead to delay their initial growth for a couple of months, if possible?
As I mentioned in another earlier post, I have good success putting my overpotted hippi's outdoors all summer. I also tend to give them a mild fungicide/pesticide while they are dormant, which really helps.
Does anyone know if Dancing Queen is a mule?
