    Iirc, the bottom section was the original (with ~3 leaves) followed by the large section to upper right. The far left and far top are recent expansions. Penny on left for scale.

    oops... never meant to set a challenge

    I keep missing post in this thread... for some reason it seems to be random as to whether Terraforums sends me a notifiction of new posts, or not.

    dunno about any of the reniformis they have never bloomed for me. nelumbifolia blooms spring and fall for me. Very few blooms over the summer. I am guessing that you need critical mass first, but a change in temperature is what may trigger blooming. Alternatively a change in day length......

    Like Mach, the big rennies have not flowered for me. Some folks across the pond give it a cold (just above freezing) & dry winter to stimulate a spring bloom. On the smaller one above, I have no clue on the catalyst(s) but I wonder if the transition from days getting longer to shorter had anything to do with it?
