What a Novice Has Learned About Gloriosa in the Last Month

By TennesseeDave
June 26, 2014

A month ago I had no idea what a Gloriosa was. I just happened to see jmorth's photos of it during my perusal of the forums. I decided then and there that it was a plant that I wanted to acquire and successfully grow. I am still very much a novice, but I have gained enough knowledge (some through painful mistakes) to offer some insights to those of you who may want to have Gloriosa but, for whatever reason, have never tried them. My teachers have been the posts here at ATP, some much appreciated advice from our resident expert on Gloriosa, and my own experience.

I am bringing my pot into the basement for the winter. In the spring I will turn the bulbs out, separate as necessary, add fresh soil mixture and plant again after threat of freeze is over.

@tgarden711 You will do just fine I am sure. Just make sure you get some good bulbs.
