Did my gladiolus grow correctly?
This was my first year to grow gladiolus so I'm unsure as to what their growth cycle is, and the internet isn't being real helpful as most sites seem to assume that you know how it should grow.
So I planted 3 corms in a container and they all sprouted and grew leaves and all that. Eventually, one of them sent up a flower pod thing and blossomed. Looked pretty nice, but I was surprised that the flowers started dying after two or three days of being open. In about a week all the flowers had bloomed and died on that stalk.
Well now I have another flower stalk coming up on another gladiolus and I'm curious as to how I can extend the blooming length on this stalk.
Also, what should I do with the other one that has already bloomed? They don't bloom again, correct? So should I just take it out and gather the corm to replant for next year? Or replant it again this year?
