From Seed To Bloom, How Long?

Hi folks, once I plant a germinated canna seed in a proper sized pot, and assuming it gets plenty of water and sunshine, typically how long does it take before I'll see the first bloom?

I want to plant cannas in pots for the purpose of reselling them. No, I don't plan to get rich, we'll be selling these at a neighborhood function. Actually my daughter will be doing so. I'm just trying to determine when the best time to plant will be based on the amount of time it takes before one begins to bloom. I want to sell them once they begin to bloom (or shortly thereafter).

I know that with seeds you never know what you'll get, so I would assume the time to bloom is not the same with all cannas, but if I could get some ideas from folks who have grown from seed that would be awesome.

Thanks!

Chris

Will the seeds be true to the mother plant?

very few types are true from seed..one of the reasons I enjoy it so much you never really know what your going to get.. this is one from seed this year. the variegation makes it slow but its the best one from seed so far

I'm hooked on starting from seeds for the very same reason, I never know what I'll get until they bloom and I'm hoping to someday end up with an absolute rare beauty lol

mine take about 3-4 months to bloom
