Hey,
I planted Ginger lily bulbs 8 years ago into pots and they have grown into health looking plants but they have yet to make flowers. I live in Canada so the plants are indoor 7 months and then outdoors during the Summer. What do I do to make them bloom?
Thanks

The conditions my ginger grows in are Z4b, when outside east facing part sun. They bloom late in the season for me, late aug to mid September. Aft a freeze, they go into a cool basement with just a minimal amount of water per month. I'm thinking this year the blooming may be iffy because we have had a very cool summer.
Occasionally fertilize with a bloom booster.
