    'Thanks and well-spotted, Corky. I'm not sure if I will let that one bloom or not. I am wanting seed this time and I'm expecting the poor plant will pay heavily for it. Here's a shot with my hand for size comparison.

    It seems like by the time the seeds begin to develop, there will be more mass in the flower stalk than the plant!
    Great plants!

    Thanks, Benny. It almost makes me think that it is trying to commit suicide by flower/seed production. The last time it went from almost 4" across down to about 1.5 inches.

    My 'Betty's Bay' has refused to flower; any particular conditions that seem to trigger it?

    Mine have been blooming in my garage window since the nighttime temps started to rise in Feb. I suspect that a significant difference between daytime high temperatures and nighttime lows might make a difference. A increasing photoperiod might also matter as a trigger. I come to this by looking at my present conditions so they're just an educated guess. I also think BB likes growing in a small net pot and being in standing water. I use a peat/perlite soil and I press a layer of long-fiber sphagnum moss around the inside of the pot to hold it in. 'Hope this helps.

    That tells me I need to switch spots; the place it's in right now really doesn't experience huge seasonal swings, and there's a pot that does that I can put in its place that will bloom no matter the conditions.
