Fred those are great looking prolifs.

Interesting talk about fertility and prolif formation - I will continue to look for what is posted on this topic.

Today I found 4 prolifs on Dr Doom (new last fall) Hurray!
Love what you teach and teach what you love!

After about 10 days of nothing but water some are ready
to go outside in pre prepared pots with fertilizer added, will get
water every other day like everything else here.

When I first put the in the cups they only had a couple of
the larger roots, now there are many feeder roots.

They have been potted and placed in bright shade
if that makes any sense.(Not dense shade) In about two weeks
I will start pushing them with the liquid fertilizer.

I am resurrecting this old thread because I made an awesome discovery this morning. A prolif planted last fall is going to bloom! Orange Firecat. This is how far I have come since my first question in 2015.
These have come from : DRAGON'S EYE, MARGO REED INDEED, MIGHTY CHESTNUT, ORANGE FIRECAT, SOME LIKE IT HOT.
These are the images of the growing prolifs planted last fall and grown in the house window.

My question this time is Should I let the scape grow? Or should I remove it?

Well there is no way I would remove it. I would have to see it bloom and make sure I had not gotten confused and crossed up the labels. I would be interested in hearing others opinion of what would be best for the plant, but I am thinking how great it is that the prolific has done so well.
Of course here it would be planted out in the ground so maybe better advice will be given by those who know your area better.
Keep us posted on how it does.

I'm in the let it bloom camp, it's nice to have flowers at this time of year and having bloomed indoors it may not bloom again now this year (in my experience from growing daylilies indoors in winter).

I'd let it bloom also. Fall of 2016 I had an unusual amount of proliferations and I planted them directly into the ground. The timing was (if I recall correctly) about the latest date in my zone that I would transplant any daylily. Being in zone 5, the prolifs do not have a lot of root on it. I planted them anyway because I didn't want to mess with them in water or pots. I put some rooting powder on them before planting. Don't know if that was a help or not. Just about half of them survived and one (Sugar Plum Jam) bloomed on the summer of 2017. I was surprised at that.

This year I had a lot of prolifs from Sugar Plum Jam again. I didn't plant any of them though. Had some medical issues going on and my poor gardens suffered a little. Hopefully I can get at them with a vengeance as soon as our spring weather is here (to stay).

Fantastic!!! Let it bloom for sure! (And share photos, too, please!)

That's awesome that you have a scape indoors! Enjoy the bloom party! It will also help you verify that the prolif is correctly labeled. Thumbs up

I never ever remove a scape willingly Rolling on the floor laughing
I have seen prolifs bloom while on the scape. I posted a picture a few years ago.

Thank you Mike !!
Oh...so do I. I can't complain about my recovery and good fortune of a promising road ahead. But the lingering fear when cancer is involved leaves you with never completely letting your guard down. Other than a pesky hip problem (perhaps related to the radiation) I'm cancer free (according to the first follow-up check up anyway). I'm so looking forward to spring and seeing things come to life again. Thumbs up Hurray! Thumbs up

Sue - Wishing and praying that you are cancer-free from this day forward. I've had friends and family members who been through the cancer challenge. It takes a lot of determination, strength, support, and prayers. I am so glad to hear you're in remission. Smiling

So I let the prolif bud grow. The bloom opened this morning and is ORANGE FIRECAT. I found it to be really difficult to get a pic of its true color. This is the best of several images. I look forward to seeing what this plant will do in the ground!

Hurray! for the first bloom of the season for you! I never thought to grow the proliferation I found last fall indoors.
