Re: Re: CULT: I. japonica

Like Tom D. and Dorothy W., I grow I. japonica in pots, and mine have
bloomed 2x in the 18 months since I've grown them.
I do not have the variegated form, but just the regular green form, and
maybe that's the difference. I'm not sure.
Mine has survived temps down to about 20 deg F. I bring it indoors during
the winter, at which point it starts sending up bloom stalks. It bloomed
for me in December/January and again in May. I assume it will bloom again
in a few weeks when I bring them indoors again.
They like lots and lots of water.
