|I thought I should start a new thread with this so it would not take away from the April Blooms thread. |
Buddy's Gloria is showing some strange bud and bloom behavior and I am trying to figure out the what and why of it.
Here is a photo of the problem:
Buddy's Gloria: 04-22-16
Here it is today: 04-23-16, I can see what to me looks like two proliferations developing next to the buds. I am wondering if that could be either part of the problem, or a symptom of the problem.

|I had one that had malformed buds each year on the initial buds. I believe it was Spectral Elegance.|
Once the nights warmed up normal buds appeared, so I pulled off the malformed
buds and waited. You probably have warm nights though, so not likely the cause.
As for the possible prolifs near the buds, haven't seen that before.

|We did have cool nights (for us ) while these buds were forming. I looked the best I could for thrips and could not find any.|

|Thrips are very secretive. If you can, hold a sheet of white printer paper under the buds and tap them as hard as you can without doing damage, see if any fall out onto the paper. It's easier if the scape is off the plant so you can tap it on the paper but I'm assuming you won't want to do that |
Keep a look out for these other guys too:
