    Default Slc. Marie Nohava Hollowed 'Abundance'

    I bought this last year as NBS, and it promptly produced a sheath that turned out blind...such a let down! So, it is now a first-time bloomer, with 4 blooms. Of course, I'm sure it's no longer "Slc." but what the heck...

    'Abundance' is a good name - look at those beauties!

    I'm encouraged to hear that last year it was NBS and now you have the flowers. Because of my lack of experience, I have bought lots of large seedlings and NBS and just figure to wait. If I mess up, I don't want to do it on anything too spectacular. And I'm cultivating my patience...

    Patty--

    "NBS" is one of those weird terms that doesn't always mean the same thing. This was from a very reputable grower, and I think they define "NBS" as that it should bloom in the next year. I've also seen it defined other places as next 18-24 months, so I guess it pays to ask. i too have some that are testing my patience!.

    It probably also pays to know what you're doing... I'm learning, though, I hope!
