I planted these guys last year about this time from seeds of my hand pollinated Alfresco. I was surprised to see how big the bulbs got in just a year! Can anyone tell me how old they have to be to start blooming?

They are so cute! Be patient, you won't see blooms for at least 3 more years, but they are really nice, with beautiful long roots.

IME some seeds turned into big (as in yours big) in a year and others were tiny for 2 years, I also agree on 3-4 yrs b4 blooming
