Dear Angelo and all,
This week I had an interesting experience with Sternbergia lutea.
 The majority was stored in a in special rooms at lower temperatures  15-22°
and another part in surrounding temperatures (which are very high here at
the moment: around 20-32°C) These stored at lower temperatures were showing
flowerbuds last week (and were planted immediately) while those stored at
ambient (higher) temperatures showed no flower buds at all.
Conclusion: high (soil) temperatures delay flowering. As far as I can see
hereflowerinf time has no relationship with humidity.
Regards from the south of France

PS  Last monday we put in line 150 new photos in our website (as a result of
my new Nikon 5400 coolpix) and expedition is in full swing at the moment.
