None blooming here, of course mine are all in pots grown inside, I am contemplating withholding water so they will go dormant, but I hate to do it when they have nice green leaves. Hilarious!

I have found, with some of mine, that when left to grow and not forced into dormancy they bloom more into late spring and summer.

Hi Brian, I decided that seeing as I had such good luck getting them to bloom last year with forced dormancy that I would do the same this year. I have enough blooms in the spring and summer and I really enjoy seeing those gorgeous blooms during the winter. I started to pot them up 2 at a time 2 weeks ago, I still have 3 to go, hopefully that way I will have blooms over a longer period of time.
