growing cannas first time

I bought a pack of 3 'Wyoming' Cannas and planted them in 6" pots to eventually move to large outdoor containers around late May. Few questions:

How long from first growth to first bloom?

Two of the rhizomes had a single bud starting to grow, the third had nothing at all. Will the third grow or is it a goner??

While indoors, what's a good temperature? Soil temp in the pots is 67 degrees. Should they be warmer? If they are warmer, will they grow faster or healthier??

Hi there! I don't haven't any advice because I also have just ordered (overordered) my first cannas, it was the cover of the Lee Valley cotalogue that got to me. We are in the same zone so I'll be waiting to hear what advice you get. Best of luck Mora

The warmer the soil the faster they will grow. Give them plenty of light also.HTH, Tara

Be patient. I've had tubers from the same batch that sprouted over a period of weeks.
