So for the new flower stalk, I guess you wont be cutting for another attempt. Good luck yeah :) Nice photos too!


I was only misting it once a day, but the pot that I had wasn't great. It wasn't a tray style instead it was like a bell shape with a drain but any excess water would collected at the bottom of the pot... Now I know better.. And ya I'm letting this one flower should be any day now a few bulbs are starting to open!! :D


Good luck and hope your flower brings you plenty of good seeds :)

Thank you. It was a lot of fun to try out, and it will teach you a lot about lighting and watering and trying different growing/watering methods
