Curcuma Inodora Blossom

sculp(z4NY)October 4, 2008

I have several Curcuma inodora plants. Some are in pots and some are in the ground. All are several years old. Tropical GH temperature is 75-85 in the daytime and 68-72 at night. They grow well, but all but one don't bloom. One, in a pot, has been a good bloomer for the last two years. It is supposed to be a spring bloomer, before or just after the foliage appears. But it blooms in the fall--just now the bloom is in maturity.

I suppose I shouldn't argue with success, but it puzzles me. Does anyone have any thoughts or experience with this plant?

Thanks

Stu Culp
