I've had mine since the early l990tys. No flowers, are you growing this plant with low light? What kind of soil? I think I will need to change my growing habits. Norma

I found 'Baseball Bat' is a sun-loving plant also need a lot of water too.
I grow most of my Sans in 2 parts perlite, 2 parts small pellet pumice,
1 part peat and 1 part loam mixed, I feed them with 'Osmocote'

I've noticed that a period of low temperature could be blooming inducement.
They usually bloom in our winter.

That does not look like low light.

I cherish your posts and wonder if I could have a mini display like yours in zone 4-5 wisconsin for a couple of months. Bugs and wind would be their demise I fear.

This is stupid I know but what is loam. I wonder where I could get small pellet pumice around here.

Thank you for posting! Diane

Hi Diane (^_^)

The loam is a kind of garden soil with some organic such as leaf-mould mixed.
