Re: REB: leaf count

I find that a mature fan, that is not initiating bloom, is a good indication
of leaf
count needed for bloom. Once flowering is initiated there is no more leaves
produced, but the last leaf or two are not visable to be counted until growth
of flower bud is initiated,

The higher the leaf count, the slower and later it will be to bloom.
Regardless of
bloom or rebloom type.

Chuck, would leaf count on fans without stalks also be a clue?  In other
words, if there are younger fans without stalks in the same clump that
have 12 or so leaf blades, would that be a clue that these are late
cycle rebloomers?

The fans that have lost a lot of their leaf blades mostly lost them
while temps were in the 80s and it was raining constantly.  Younger fans
that have developed in cooler temps are in better shape.

<Don't forget to check mature leaf count , as the ones with lower mature
leaf count will usually produce earlier fall cyclic rebloom, and with
summer rebloomers will produce earlier rebloom.
