This is about the 6th time I have gotten flowers all over this one since the spring, but this is about the most I have ever gotten at once and during the cold weather!~

Please, take a peek!

Hey Kemistry: How have you been? Good to see you:-)

Well, at this time of the year, it is in my small greenhouse which only gets about 2 hours of sun and the rest just daylight.

In November until March when I bring them Inside, I keep them in the warmest part of the house in winter in front of a small south facing window.

Outside all summer, I keep them in just morning sun and daylight after that. Mine never see full all day sun and I feed it consistently with 1/4 strength fertilizer which I think might be the key. By nature, their leaves want to yellow very rapidly if not fed and the amount of flowers in minimal. When I constantly feed them, their leaves stay a nice green and they flower continually. I can't wait for the plant to flower out within the next few days.

Mike, I've been feeding mine 1/4 tsp of FP too. Mine has been growing taller but no buds on it yet, i think i just need to be more patient.

Have your Michelia alba bloomed yet? I'm always looking forward to see your pictures, please post more when you have the time. :)

Congratulations, Mike!

You've got so many buds. I bet your house will smell wonderful soon!
Thanks for the fertilizing tips.
Yesterday I noticed a flower bud developing at the very tip of one of the branches on my B. gigantea. This will be the first time it's flowered so I'm very excited!
