    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?

    Can I make a suggestion? Maybe one or a couple of you guys could do a moss give-away. I remember it was hard finding a stumpy/short sheet-y kind of moss to grow small leaves in on a cork slab back in the day, so maybe there's some other people out there who are looking for mosses too

    Meanwhile my U.nelumbi flowered for a good 4 months straight this year. I guess it wanted a little less sunlight so maybe indirect light (the shade of a Sarra pot) + potted in wet/sludgey/sphag-y mess is the way to go for blooms. The portion I 'potted' = tossed into the terra at work is taking off making taaalllll small-leafed leaf stalks. We'll see if it flowers this year..

    I have not yet seen a flower on my Reniformis either.
    But I am at the point I can divide and isolate a few divisions in several locations and see what may come of it all.

    Just popping in so sorry if this has already been said.... some 'Big Sister' flowering info can be found in this thread: http://www.terraforums.com/forums/sh...-yep-in-flower! Sorry, but I can't give any more information than what is in that thread on the subject. :-\

    that actually helps out quite a bit Andrew. Got my original division from Bob, so wondered a little more how he cared for it. He says,"plants flower every summer with the flowers lasting about 3 months."
    Think my cold period is a little too long and cold for outdoor winters though.
