    Talking Pleione bloom in S/H

    Approx. 5 weeks after potting my Pleiones in S/H one has bloomed and the other is still growing.

    I just love S/H, I even placed all my Hyacinth bulbs into S/H.

    I hate to throw cold water on this, but my long-term experiments with plieones in S/H suggests it's not such a great idea: As the new corms grow, they did not stay subsurface as they are supposed to, but became a gnarled mass on the top.
