Mark, I wish I could tell you a secret to get yours to bloom, but I have no idea. This one came as a pretty mature plant cut off my friend's. I know maturity does help them to bloom. Thank you. My mother believes in fertilizer and a strong threat. She is little, but gets results. 😂💗 @maldavis
Thank you, I agree. The flower slowly puts out little blue flowers around the head of this flower. The last one really didn't fade for about a year. I was amazed. @midnightgardener @laneygarden @gjones
Yes, @heatherdirtyhands. The life cycle is mature plant will flower and then it grows pups. Once the pups mature enough to survive one their own, the mother's leaves die off and then, when the pups fully mature they will flower..... And it continues. 💖
@Flicka, I am not really able to tell you. My friend gave me a big hunk of her mature plant and I have just put it in this pot, like two years ago, and stood back. I fertilize and water. Sorry I can not tell you more. I don't remove the pups, as I like a huge clump. I will be putting this in the ground when I determine where I really want it. 💞
Wow, I’m surprised she was able to do that. I thought you could only remove pups. I have one also, I have removed 1 pup, my pot seems to be getting smaller. I don’t know if I should keep removing pups or put the plant in a larger pot.
@terrimclaughlin, this sits in a spot that gets diffused to direct sun for about five hours a day. If you do move yours, make sure to do it slowly so as not to sunburn them. This blooms for my neighbor (mine is a cutting from her's) every year, hut only because it is a mature plant.
Well, @mardel , I think that is ok. I usually plant mine in the ground, but this one I do plan to keep in a pot in my patio. Soil? Not sure, but some others 🤔 may help us: @gjones @Acetaker @brightcolours @plants
