My Blooming Season Is Starting!

joshy46013December 4, 2011

Hi Guys,

Well my hybrids are preparing to bloom, these are the ones I've kept evergreen that I bought last season.

The ones preparing to bloom:




Sunny Prince


These is only one bulb that isn't sending up a scape and that is 'Lemon Trumpet'. These are blooming quite early, I have not forced them at all, I watered, fed and provided sunlight and I've had them in growth since buying them. Does anyone else bloom so early?


Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

The earliest I've ever had a Hippeastrum bloom, by its own cycle, was in February. The bulb was a hybrid, Minerva... and I chose to grow it like a houseplant, allowing it to rest or actively grow on its own natural schedule. A couple of years, it decided to send up scapes in February, as the days grew longer in my northern climate.

The usual cycle is purchasing in autumn, followed by a Christmas blooming... only because the bulbs are primed to bloom by the grower. But when allowed to revert to their natural bloom cycles, I find most will bloom around early spring, some closer to late spring or early summer, depending upon certain variables.

I hope you'll post photos as your bulbs bloom... I've not heard of a couple of your choices, and I'm interested to see what they look like!

By the way... nice blog! I can't wait to read more! :-)
