    All my Psychosis take a break in the winter months with developing spikes stalling. It is nice to see yours now in bud. Mine are also now taking off again too!! What I am really waiting for is my papilio alba to bloom. That was one that stalled on it's first spike in the fall but I can see a bud developing on it now and there is a new spike developing as well!!!

    Hmm.. my pyps bloom year round. Haven't bloomed my alba yet, as I got it as a tiny seedling, hoping now that it's up to 6" leaves it will spike soon.

    The greenhouse is kept fairly cool in the winter and I assume that is why mine take a break. 6" leaves should be big enough for blooming. My plant's leaves can't be more than 4" and I have spikes. I give the alba a bit more light than the others.
