got the floppy feesia leaves. now what??
hi there, bulb experts!
this is my third attempt at growing freesias. first time I planted them outside, and I got one that grew and gave me a bloom- I was in heaven! (well, I think I had planted about 10 bulbs that time...) anyway, that was that, and never seen the fellow again.
next time I planted the corms in a pot, inside. got the floppy lush foliage, no blooms whatsoever. I emailed the website where I got them and they said that the plants probably did not get enough light. Those were gone too. I said to myself that I won't attempt this sgain. Sure enough, I found some corms at Walmart this time, and I couldn't resist... Now I got to the floppy-leaf stage again, then I discovered this forum. I read thru the messages regarding this topic, I still have one question though: now what do I do? Is there any hope left for these plants now that they have so many crazy leaves, or do I need to wait for next year? How do I fix this thing? I long for the fragrant flowers, especially because they are not popular with the florists here in town (Nampa,Idaho), for some reason. I am originally from Europe and in February-March you can find freesias everywhere. Here I only seen them one time at albertsons- they had one sad-looking pot with half-dead flowers in it, and that was the first and last time I seen any...
