These Nerines bloomed only once, the year I received them from Telos. I would like to blame at least the first failure on Diana, based on the 3 year bloom cycle I now know about, but I suspect the fault lies with the neighboring Cantua buxifolia that has grown 10 feet since I planted the Nerines, shading them out severely -- or rather with me, for insufficiently vigorous pruning. The goal of moving them was not heat but light. As far as I can remember, they have increased in size (and leaves) since I planted them. I believe that was 3 years ago, but I am also not sure about that. It is still possible that they will bloom this year after their transplant, of course. Most went into my bulb bed proper, unwatered in summer; I put one in the adjoining "Protea bed": sandier soil, no phosphorous, occasional summer water, as an experiment. I will report my results here, of course. Best, Max Oakland CA Where I can now report that Lachenalia aloides v. quadricolor emerges at least 2 weeks before Brunsvigia josephinae and Bulbinella latifolium (which I had thought of as similarly early winter growers). Also, I just stumbled over the Colchicum 'Glory of Heemstede' flowers. (Colchicum and Lachenalia both from esteemed list member Odyssey Bulbs) From: "andrew" <email@example.com> > Coming in rather late to this conversation I'd like to know whether Max, > you have seen problems, such as non-blooming, following the move reported. Increased temperature, as other authors well versed in this subject, have pointed out is unlikely to be a problem. If the problem does indeed turn out to be one, then indeed, you are at fault! But your fault is not with choosing the hotter, drier place but in moving them at all! They may take a year or two to settle down.
