Winter-growing Haemanthus are also coming into flower here - buds appeared in the dry resting pots a few days ago and are expanding rapidly now that they are being watered. Cooler temperatures (or a sudden drop in temperature) may be a trigger and seem more probable than daylength. We have certainly progressed into cool 'autumnal' weather - has anyone else noted a cooling event that could have caused flowering to start?
