When will my gloxinia bloom?

GloxiniaLoverApril 8, 2012

I am curious as to when my gloxinia will bloom? I dont know how old it is but I got it fall of 2011. It was dormant for about 3-4 months then just came up on its own so i started watering it. Now has 4 pairs of leaves, while last fall it bloomed with 2 pairs. When do you think it will bloom? Thanks!

Hi. Are you talking about fuzzy-leaf Florist Gloxina, 'large leaves?'

The more light, there's a better chance buds will form.

Long ago, I had a Glox that started blooming in June.

Once more leaves and plant grows compact, try forcing by withholding water and fertilizer 2-3-wks. Afterwards, especially once more leaves grow, give your Glox a hearty drink, and place in a sunny area. Toni

I prefer botom-watering Gloxinas. Less chance of rot. It's a matter of choice though. Toni

Yes thank you! Im not very familiar with gloxinias and only know the basic care, and not any of the different types. I have a grow light which it could certainly go under.

The Florist Gloxina I mean...leaves are fuzzy, large..7-9" long. Round tips.

No sun, only a grow-light?
If you decide to keep your Glox under a grow-light w/o natural sun, Glox should be 4-6" under bulb. Since Gro-lights don't produce heat, or much, it won't burn leaves, and needs all the light it can get. Light should stay on 8-10 hours per day. Good luck, Toni
