How to increase flower count
« on: March 01, 2016, 21:56:22 »
Some of my plants are putting up fewer flowers in the umbel each year. Aside from breeding to get high flower counts, what cultural factors influence the size and number of individual flowers?

Bump.
If you not dreaming. You're just sleeping.

I would suggest that contributing factors can be:

- climatic conditions (how cold was winter etc)
- Fertilizer/nutrient availability
- condition/age/health of potting medium (including biota present)
- availability of sunlight
- How heavily the plant has been pollinated (and set seed to maturity) in previous years

Just some initial thoughts.
