My peyote are feebly attempting to flower...
    #577010 - 03/12/02 04:52 PM (16 years, 1 month ago)

...how can i help them along to full bloom?

One has already started to flower (a bright pink 'blob' started to emerge from among the central tuft) but this just shriveled and has stopped going anywhere.

Now that same peyote plus another one has a few more wee pink blobs!

I wondered if anyone knew why they might be failing to finish flowering? They haven't been watered since ~october or thereabouts. is now the time to start watering them again (here in Scotland spring is starting slowly, i'd say)?

The flower buds are emerging from underneath last years dried up flowers (from when i didn't own them) i.e. still attached, but they look petal textured, i don't think they're fruit. Does anyone have any experience of what a peyote flower starting looks like?

Thanks

keep them in the dark, the flowering period will last longer that way, I think.

if the "blobs" look like this picture then are fruits

consider that this is a 20 years old mexican peyote
yours could be different...but not too much

Hi,

it sounds to me, like if your plant produced fruits. My experience is that they flower when they get at least some hours of sun a day and get water once every two weeks. Mine flowers in Germany between may and july (produces up to 3 flowers within that time).

This is how I get him to flower:

- in winter held with not much light and at a temperature of 18 C. Almost no watering (I spray some water in the morning on it)

- when the sun starts to shine in spring I start to water it every 4 weeks and reduce constantly the time between the waterings to 1 week in the summer (always checking that the soil is not too wet of course).

- between spring and summer it starts to flower. It shows that the flower opens only twice, when the sun shines on it. The increasing light and the watering are a signal for it that the conditions are correct to flower.

The flowers come very fast and wither also very fast. Within one week you see the fist sign of the flower and right after 2 days it opens and withers 2 days later.

Here is some eyecandy:




Have fun,

Elektrolurch

BTW I need a mate for the one in the photo. I have 4 different ones, but only this one is old enough to flower...

I forgot to write that they like high temperatures to flower (about 25 C or more), but they need a lower temperature in the winter (less than 20 C).
