Hi fred,


As Nhu suggests - cooling off period and leaving the leaves on.  But I like
to place in greenhouse hat is really humid and moist after dormancy. Then I
use granite chips for really good drainage.  And I am also wondering if he
charcol amount is to much and making soil too alkaline.


Let us know what you figure out as I am sure you will get them to bloom!
