Great photo. Mine bloom pretty much from June thru Jan when they finally go dormant. Have you ever heard a seed pod pop? I had them inside one year and a seed pod popped in the middle of the night. The sound was audible and the seeds shot out about 30' away from the plant! Now I tie a piece of nylon around the pods to catch the seeds. Finally found a use for stockings that have run.
