When I first got Lee Pickles it was 2 very small fans. It took two years to bloom- the plant or the condition of the fans I got? Blooms very short for me. Pretty bloom. No stats on fertility.

Love what you teach and teach what you love!

I received three fans of Lee Pickles in late spring of 2013, and had no blooms that year. In 2014, the fans had atleast tripled, but only had one ten inch scape with one bloom, the one in the picture from the first post. I was very disappointed, but this year it went to work, with multiple tall scapes, and blooms that looked fantastic. I didn't check the stats, but I was very happy, finally, this year with LP. I set several pods this year on it, but they all aborted, many plants did this or didn't set pods at all due to an early heat wave, with temps as high as 114, so I will wait and see how it does as a mom.
