So, my daughter's friend decided that the tulips were so pretty that her mom would want them, so she cut off all of the flowers and took them to her mom. I really hope they can bounce back, but I not sure they will.
Yes. They will be just fine. When the leaves die back you can cut them off at the soil surface and store the bulbs away until fall. They need approximately 12 weeks of cold (under 55 degrees) to recharge and sprout in the spring.
@ewilkerson84 - Hi and thank you for following me. It will be fun to have you along for the ride! Since you are new to GT, then a big warm welcome comes your way from all of us! Please feel free to ask or input anything at any time. Bring your pets & hobbies along with you! Mostly just relax, enjoy, & have a great 👍 gardening year! 🌴🌺🐾
@cschulz02 Thank you for the warm welcome! I am pushing myself out of my comfort zone socially, since everyone is extremely nice here it makes it that much easier. I set up my high school's hydroponics greenhouse back in 2001/02. But, being a military brat at the time, I had to leave it behind. I am getting back into this hobby and I am relearning everything. Thanks again for the warm welcome! #warmwelcome #amazingcommunity
@ewilkerson84 - You are most welcome! And I can appreciate about the social part myself. Glad you are pushing yourself to be with us. I think you’ll find it very enjoyable as you go along. Good luck! 🌴🌺🐾
@cschulz02 I do have a question, hopefully we can find an answer. Do you know if a full spectrum lamp would help my flowers grow better? I live in a small apartment and I don't have a lot of space. Also, my porch rarely gets enough sun to nourish my plants. Would the full spectrum lamp work since they are on my dresser, in my bedroom? #advice-needed
@ewilkerson84 - I think it will help, but to be sure, ask @ShelleySnyder. You could also ask @brightcolours. Be sure to use the @ sign as shown, then type your note & press send. You can ask both at once by simply including both in the note. Hope this helps! 🌴🌺🐾
@ShelleySnyder @brightcolours I need some advice. I live in an apartment with a porch. My porch doesn't get enough sunlight for most of my flowers, but in the late afternoon my bedroom is bright and sunny. So, my question is will a full spectrum lamp system help my plants grow when I cannot open my blinds. Thank you for your help and advice.
Hey there new leaves growing along side the mother means that the bulb is making baby bulbs. These will be an entirely new plant but may not bloom this year. Suggestion is let them be and dig them up this winter and separate them. If you leave the new bulb bunched up they may begin to rot. I hope that helps a little. 😆
It is very easy and your plant actually like it. Just remove the plant and start carefully seperating they will not be attached to the mother and they will all have there own roots. Once separate then just replant to allow more development.
