Should bloom again; size looks good.
Nothing that's been done can ever be changed.

I agree That's a nice healthy looking bulb. I've bought hymenocallis bulbs that size in recent years and they bloom within a few months. Thumbs up BTW, Welcome! to the bulbs forum. To aid members in assisting you better, please edit your profile and tell us where you are located.

That's blooming size yes. If you feed them regularly during the season, it'll fatten up nicely. Mine have almost tripled in size past season. Only to be struck by red blotch Grumbling Crying
