any veltheimia growers out there? mine has refused to flower for the last 3 years what am i doing wrong ...........should i completley stop watering it? and not feed it? i rarely do but it did flower when i left it alone and went on holiday for 2 months in the winter once its dying down again now until jan/feb




Here in Arizona we grow them outside in the shade, and they go completely dormant every summer, leaving just a bare bulb showing above ground. I suspect that yours will need a dormant period, but I am unsure what the best time for this would be in the UK. I would also check to make sure that it is getting enough light--they like shade outdoors, but not really dark areas.
