Hi all,

Mary Sue your memory is probably better than mine and I hope I'm not
repeating myself repeating myself but I am pretty sure that the last
go-round I recall on rain lilies (over two years back now on an email forum)
the consensus (of the rain lily experts) was that the bloom trigger was six
weeks completely dry followed by a good watering, repeat throughout summer.
Anyone else remember this?
