    I agree with Ron, it has taken sometimes a longer period especially if you run into a bump in the road. I now try to purchase a mature plant when possible. It might cost alittle more but it might be worth it by getting a healthy established plant that will bloom for you in a short period of time.
    likely in the next blooming season. Nothing like instant gratification. Hank....
