My Basement Blooms

Postby Lulu » Dec 16, 2012 2:10 pm

Stuff should not be blooming now, but it is just too warm in my basement.

The brug has Frankenbuds and blooms on it but no leaves at all. The boug had leaves, but they've been falling, like crazy; the bigger boug lost all it's leaves, and is now growing a full set of light green ones. Didn't take a pic of the bigger one because I cannot get close to it.

I have grow lights but the blooming plants were not originaly close to them. Moved them closer now, to see what happens.

What's going on?

My goodness .... your having quite a blooming there.Looks like they couldn't wait to get growing.

According to the rules ... you know season,temperature,light requirements they shouldn't be growing let alone blooming.Maybe they think they are in a greenhouse and are acting accordingly ? ..... Will this mess them up for their next proper season ?

Wish I could do this with my Amaryillis bulbs they just grow green and won't re-bloom for me.
