getting hippeastrum papilio to bloom
Mon, 14 May 2007 23:03:21 PDT
John, I have 2 pots of papilio.  I leave them outside year round in  Los 
Gatos.  They get whatever water nature provides in the winter. I water  with a 
hose in the summer and they have bloomed beautifully every year.  I  say that but 
they haven't bloomed yet this year.  My first hippeastrum just  opened 
yesterday and another today and there are more pots out there to come  in.  I don't 
bring them in until they are ready to open.  I do  fertilize a couple of times 
a year, kind of randomly,  I did a 3-5  weeks ago.
