    I might as well send Margo the piece of hers I owe her. It just sits there with it's sheaths, mocking me. I got caught the other day by a neighbor while I was telling it to "bloom d*&^%it". lol The crazy plant lady talking to her plants again.... So how do you get yours to bloom? Cursing hasn't worked so far.

    I am so in love!!!!!! Love maxima! I have one seedling that was taken out of the flask only a few months ago but don't know the rest of its name... and I also have flask with C. maxima concolor 'MAJ', but it needs to stay in the flask for at least another month...
    Ron, how long it takes (appx) from deflasking to blooming?

    Too long. My seedlings have been out of flask since 2006 and are still a few years from blooming. Patience is the key word with small seedlings.
