Hello Phil ,

I had a Alcantarea and it took the plant 18 years to come to flower.Another one took 15 years.

Regards Bert

I have a Alc. glaziouana flowering now at approx 8 years old . Several others from same seed batch are larger and show no sign of flowering , I can onlybguess the stress of being blown over and drying out a few times instigated this. MAny of the large Alc. brasiliana flowered after shifting at 13 years old , others took another 10 years .
