Your post is not coming up, so that's why you're not getting any answers. At least that's what happens when I click on it and I've tried a couple days now.

Maybe post it again??? Everyone here is sooo helpful, don't want you to think we're all ignoring you :0

Some years ago Aciderantha (peacodk Orchid) underwent a re-classification and was renamed Peacock Gladiolus. Aparently it its botanically a relative of the gladiolus family. I don't know where you live, but several years ago I grew them in the summer, lifted them in the fall, replanted them, for a number of years, but never got them to flower. I found similar information in a 'bulb book' I once borrowed from the library. I don't know what zone you are in, but if in a warm zone you may have success. Perhaps they should be started indoors early. Good luck.
