Gurcharanji, beautiful flower.  You have any idea why my two years old plant is not flowering?  When I bought it as a bulb it flowered, then stopped flowering.

Regards,

Mani.

Mani ji it often happens with bulbous plants. When you buy them they have enough of food storage for flowering. The flowers exhaust food reserves. You have to put good manure and nurture plants during next 11 months so that it may attain good food storage for flowering next year. Daffodils often don't flower even with care in dry tropical climate, as summer heat exhausts the food storage.

Thanks Gurcharan ji for your valuable info.  I will put lots of dried cow dung and ash around the plant this year.  Hope to see it flowering next year.
Regards,
Mani.
