I’ve been trying to bloom this species since 2017. I realized that when I saw an old post from pcolman. He had success with it growing a little warmer and with no defined rest. That didn’t work for me, perhaps because my winters are a bit colder? This past year, it dropped its foliage in November and I kept it very dry through April with only an occasional drop or two of moisture. As the leaves started to grow, I did start to water a little more and then the buds appeared. It has now been in bloom since early June and has seen many extreme weather shifts in between…from near record heat to record cold in a matter of days and on more than one occasion! Definitely worth the wait!
