Congratulations! Strong work and I too can't wait to see the blooms open.

Please share! What was your secret to getting them this far? Was it LOTS of sunlight and warmth? Were they kept outside? Did you fertilize and with what?
I would be interested if it is easy and really appreciate your input.
Did you have to deal with any pest issues? I heard they are bug magnets.

Thank you so much.

Mike:-)

Hi Meyer Mike:)
Not sure of the age , but I bought it last year in flower. When it was finished, I put it under lights in the basement [kindof neglected the watering lol] This spring and summer, it went outside in our back yard, in dappled sun. I just started noticing the tiny flower buds about a month or so back. Since I brought it in, it has had natural sunlight,and is in our coolish room.
No fragrance as yet,but the little flowers are not open, can't wait to smell them :)

SPETACULAR!

Oh I can smell them from here. Like a fragrant fireworks display!

Strong work. Now that I finally met someone who has succeeded, I might take a try at it:-)

Thanks for the encouragement and hope!

Mike

You are so welcome meyermike! I also forgot to mention it was fertilized every watering, but Very weakly [any regular fertilizer, very dilute:)
