Does that mean >when it blooms? there are a lot of "W's" is it when they are dormant? > Sam, The cycle is their growth cycle.... i.e when they are in growth. Basically you tend to find that plants are winter or summer growers (I know this is a generalisation, but you get the idea <grin>) which gives you an idea when to expect leaves etc. Flowers of course will just depend on the plant type as some flower at beginning, during or end of the leaves depending what they are. That is my understanding of the cycles that Dell sent, but I am more than happy to be corrected if I am wrong ('cause then I'll know what it REALLY means <big grin>). Cheers.
