How do you get your aechmea bromeliad to bloom you have 3 different plants that have never bloomed over a period of a couple yearshow can you make it bloom?
Young bromeliads will not bloom. It takes thee or four years at least for the plant to be mature enough to bloom. If your bromeliad was blooming when you got it, it will not bloom again...ever...it will produce an offset that you can pot on it's own when it's about 1/3 to 1/2 the size of the mother plant.

If you mean Anthurium then they are not Orchids but perennial evergreen mostly epiphytics found in tropical and subtropical North and South America. The term epiphyte tells you the conditions they like. Given the right conditions they will bloom.
According to the University of Florida:\n. \nMany factors cause bromeliads to bloom such as plant age, day length, light intensity, water and temperature. Some bromeliads bloom quite regularly while others do not. Research on the flowering process has shown that bromeliads can be induced to flower …by exposing them to ethylene gas (a product of burning wood and leaves and ripening fruit and vegetables). After exposure to ethylene gas, the flowers appear, depending on the genus involved, within 6 to 14 weeks. A simple method that a home gardener can use to start bromeliads' flowering is to place a healthy, mature plant with all the water drained from its cup inside a tightly closed, clear plastic bag for a week to 10 days with a ripe apple. During senescence (aging process), the apple releases ethylene gas that, in turn, induces the bromeliad to flower. (MORE)
If you mean literally, then it usually means a planting over an area of one particular type of flower ( more often than not, annuals) Species suitable for this would be pansies, petunias, dianthus, roses, bulbs, marigolds, poppies, cinerarias, impatiens, phlox, salvias, snapdragon, stocks.
Yes, you can plant them, but it depends if they received adequate nutrition after they flowered last season whether they will flower well again. This is particularly so for the fancy varieties, which tend to deteriorate over time.
No. Keep your tulip bulbs in a cool, dry place until October or November, depending on where you live, and then plant them about six inches deep in the ground. In areas similar to where tulips evolved, they will recur annually, but in dissimilar environments, they may only bloom once or twice.

"Ahhhh! Such a sublimed enchanting flowerâ¦!" Scientific name: Epiphyllum oxypetalum Common Names: *Night-blooming Cereus Queen of the Night Deer-Horn Cactus Dutchman's pipe cactus I've a NBC from a cutting about 10+ years now. It seems to bloom about every year or so. The plan…t itself is not very attractive but interesting as being in the cactus family. FYI: The flat leaf is not a leaf; but it is the plants stalk. Look for a little spur of a bud nodule on the flat "stalk's" bladed edge. Usually one spur per stalk's edge. But I did see two on one @ one time. It may take 2-4 years before these very fragrant trumpet-shaped flowers bloom for only one to four nights depending on size and age of plant in June or July, are up to 4 - 6 inches wide and as much as 8 inches long. Flower(s) opens in the evening and closes in the morning when it becomes light. The waxy, creamy-white, many-petaled flowers are followed by a red-orange, short spined elliptical fruit about 3 inches long. Ohhhhh..., these flowers are very fragrant, with a spicy sweet-sour almost scent. Stems are cylindrical and flattened, not leaves. The Night-blooming Cereus is one of the strangest plants of the desert. A member of the Cactus Family that resembles nothing more than a dead bush most of the year(s). It is rarely seen in the wild because of its inconspicuousness. The NBC plant should have ample drainage into reservoir. Potting medium preferred: 75% sand, (per cactus, succulent, etc.), 25% good grade potting soil. Likes so heat & semi-bright sunlight. Water once every two weeks.

Molasses! The "Super Plant Carb!".........here we go................................................ Much the same way a sneaky Sylvester cat is exposed by a little yellow bird saying - "I thought I saw a puddy tat . . . I did I did see a puddy tat . . . and he's standing right there!" - our Tweeti…e bird had discovered the essence of this product. It was indeed nothing more than Blackstrap Molasses, a quick taste had conformed for our Tweetie bird that she had wasted her time and effort lugging home a very expensive bottle of plant food additive. Molasses is something we already use for gardening at the Bird's Nest. In fact sweeteners like molasses have long been a part of the arsenal of common products used by organic gardeners to bring greater health to their soils and plants. So please listen to the little yellow bird when she chirps, because our Tweetie bird knows her stuff. The fertilizer companies are like the bumbling Sylvester in many ways, but rather than picturing themselves stuffed with a little bird, they see themselves growing fat with huge profits from the wallets of unsuspecting consumers. Let us assure you it's not the vision of yellow feathers floating in front of their stuffed mouths that led these executives in their attempt to "pounce" on the plant growing public. And the repackaging of molasses as plant food or plant additive is not just limited to the companies selling their products in hydroponic stores. Folks shopping at places like Wal-Mart are just as likely to be taken in by this tactic. In this particular case the offending party is SchultzÂ® Garden Safe All Purpose Liquid Plant Food 3-1-5. This is a relatively inexpensive product that seems appealing to a variety of organic gardeners. Here's Shultz own description of their product. "Garden Safe Liquid Plant Foods are made from plants in a patented technology that provides plants with essential nutrients for beautiful flowers and foliage and no offensive smell. Plus they improve soils by enhancing natural microbial activity. Great for all vegetables, herbs, flowers, trees, shrubs and houseplants including roses, tomatoes, fruits, and lawns. Derived from completely natural ingredients, Garden Safe All Purpose Liquid Plant Food feeds plants and invigorates soil microbial activity. Made from sugar beet roots! No offensive manure or fish odors." That sure sounds good, and the three_little_birds will even go as far as to say we agree 100% with all the claims made in that little blurb of ad copy. But here's the problem, Shultz isn't exactly telling the public that the bottle of "fertilizer" they are buying is nothing more than a waste product derived from the production of sugar. In fact, SchultzÂ® Garden Safe 3-1-5 Liquid Plant Food is really and truly nothing more than a form molasses derived from sugar beet processing that is usually used as an animal feed sweetener. If you don't believe a band of birds, go ahead and look for yourself at the fine print on a Garden Safe bottle where it says - "Contains 3.0% Water Soluble Nitrogen, 1.0% Available Phosphate, 5.0% Soluble Potash - derived from molasses." The only problem we see, is that animal feed additives shouldn't be retailing for $7.95 a quart, and that's the price Shultz is charging for it's Garden Safe product. While we don't find that quite as offensive as Advanced Nutrients selling their "CarboLoad" product for $14.00 a liter, we still know that it's terribly overpriced for sugar processing wastes. So, just as our band of birds gave the scoop on poop in our Guano Guide, we're now about to give folks the sweet truth about molasses. Molasses is a syrupy, thick juice created by the processing of either sugar beets or the sugar cane plant. Depending on the definition used, Sweet Sorghum also qualifies as a molasses, although technically it's a thickened syrup more akin to Maple Syrup than to molasses. The grade and type of molasses depends on the maturity of the sugar cane or beet and the method of extraction. The different molasses' have names like: first molasses, second molasses, unsulphured molasses, sulphured molasses, and blackstrap molasses. For gardeners the sweet syrup can work as a carbohydrate source to feed and stimulate microorganisms. And, because molasses (average NPK 1-0-5) contains potash, sulfur, and many trace minerals, it can serve as a nutritious soil amendment. Molasses is also an excellent chelating agent. Several grades and types of molasses are produced by sugar cane processing. First the plants are harvested and stripped of their leaves, and then the sugar cane is usually crushed or mashed to extract it's sugary juice. Sugar manufacturing begins by boiling cane juice until it reaches the proper consistency, it is then processed to extract sugar. This first boiling and processing produces what is called first molasses, this has the highest sugar content of the molasses because relatively little sugar has been extracted from the juice. Green (unripe) sugar cane that has been treated with sulphur fumes during sugar extraction produces sulphured molasses. The juice of sun-ripened cane which has been clarified and concentrated produces unsulphured molasses. Another boiling and sugar extraction produces second molasses which has a slight bitter tinge to its taste. Further rounds of processing and boiling yield dark colored blackstrap molasses, which is the most nutritionally valuable of the various types of molasses. It is commonly used as a sweetner in the manufacture of cattle and other animal feeds, and is even sold as a human health supplement. Any kind of molasses will work to provide benefit for soil and growing plants, but blackstrap molasses is the best choice because it contains the greatest concentration of sulfur, iron and micronutrients from the original cane material. Dry molasses is something different still. It's not exactly just dried molasses either, it's molasses sprayed on grain residue which acts as a "carrier". Molasses production is a bit different when it comes to the sugar beet. You might say "bird's know beets" because one of our flock grew up near Canada's "sugar beet capitol" in Alberta. Their family worked side by side with migrant workers tending the beet fields. The work consisted of weeding and thinning by hand, culling the thinner and weaker plants to leave behind the best beets. After the growing season and several hard frosts - which increase the sugar content - the beets are harvested by machines, piled on trucks and delivered to their destination. At harvest time, a huge pile of beets will begin to build up outside of the sugar factory that will eventually dwarf the factory itself in size. Gradually throughout the winter the pile will diminish as the whole beets are ground into a mash and then cooked. The cooking serves to reduce and clarify the beet mash, releasing huge columns of stinky (but harmless) beet steam into the air. Sometimes, if the air is cold enough, the steam will fall to the ground around the factory as snow! As we've already learned, in the of sugar cane the consecutive rounds of sugar manufacturing produce first molasses and second molasses. With the humble sugar beet, the intermediate syrups get names like high green and low green, it's only the syrup left after the final stage of sugar extraction that is called molasses. After final processing, the leftover sugar beet mash is dried then combined with the thick black colored molasses to serve as fodder for cattle. Sugar beet molasses is also used to sweeten feed for horses, sheep, chickens, etc. Sugar beet molasses is only considered useful as an animal feed additive because it has fairly high concentrations of many salts including calcium, potassium, oxalate, and chloride. Despite the fact that it's not suitable for human consumption and some consider it to be an industrial waste or industrial by-product, molasses produced from sugar beets makes a wonderful plant fertilizer. While humans may reject beet molasses due to the various "extras" the sugar beet brings to the table, to our plant's it's a different story. Sugar beet molasses is usually fairly chemical free as well, at least in our experience. Although farmers generally fertilize their fields in the spring using the various arrays of available fertilizers, weed chemicals (herbicides) are not used for this crop due to the beet plant's relatively delicate nature. There is at least one other type of "molasses" we are aware of, and that would be sorghum molasses. It's made from a plant known as sweet sorghum or sorghum cane in treatments somewhat similar to sugar beets and/or sugar cane processing. If our understanding is correct, sorghum molasses is more correctly called a thickened syrup rather than a by-product of sugar production. So in our eyes sorghum molasses is probably more like Maple Syrup than a true molasses. In the distant past sorghum syrup was a common locally produced sweetener in many areas, but today it is fairly rare speciality product that could get fairly pricey compared to Molasses. Because sorghum molasses is the final product of sweet sorghum processing, and blackstrap and sugar beet molasses are simply waste by-products of sugar manufacturing, it's pretty easy to understand the difference in expense between the products. The word from the birds is - there isn't any apparent advantage to justify the extra expense of using sorghum molasses as a substitute for blackstrap or sugar beet molasses in the garden. So if you find sorghum molasses, instead of using it in your garden, you'll probably want to use it as an alternate sweetener on some biscuits. That's a quick bird's eye look at the differences between the various types and grades of molasses and how they are produced. Now it's time to get a peek at the why's and how's of using molasses in gardening. Why Molasses? The reason nutrient manufacturer's have "discovered" molasses is the simple fact that it's a great source of carbohydrates to stimulate the growth of beneficial microorganisms. "Carbohydrate" is really just a fancy word for sugar, and molasses is the best sugar for horticultural use. Folks who have read some of our prior essays know that we are big fans of promoting and nourishing soil life, and that we attribute a good portion of our growing success to the attention we pay to building a thriving "micro-herd" to work in concert with plant roots to digest and assimilate nutrients. We really do buy into the old organic gardening adage - "Feed the soil not the plant." Molasses is a good, quick source of energy for the various forms of microbes and soil life in a compost pile or good living soil. As we said earlier, molasses is a carbon source that feeds the beneficial microbes that create greater natural soil fertility. But, if giving a sugar boost was the only goal, there would be lot's of alternatives. We could even go with the old Milly Blunt story of using Coke on plants as a child, after all Coke would be a great source of sugar to feed microbes and it also contains phosphoric acid to provide phosphorus for strengthening roots and encouraging blooming. In our eyes though, the primary thing that makes molasses the best sugar for agricultural use is it's trace minerals. In addition to sugars, molasses contains significant amounts of potash, sulfur, and a variety of micronutrients. Because molasses is derived from plants, and because the manufacturing processes that create it remove mostly sugars, the majority of the mineral nutrients that were contained in the original sugar cane or sugar beet are still present in molasses. This is a critical factor because a balanced supply of mineral nutrients is essential for those "beneficial beasties" to survive and thrive. That's one of the secrets we've discovered to really successful organic gardening, the micronutrients found in organic amendments like molasses, kelp, and alfalfa were all derived from other plant sources and are quickly and easily available to our soil and plants. This is especially important for the soil "micro-herd" of critters who depend on tiny amounts of those trace minerals as catalysts to make the enzymes that create biochemical transformations. That last sentence was our fancy way of saying - it's actually the critters in "live soil" that break down organic fertilizers and "feed" it to our plants. One final benefit molasses can provide to your garden is it's ability to work as a chelating agent. That's a scientific way of saying that molasses is one of those "magical" substances that can convert some chemical nutrients into a form that's easily available for critters and plants. Chelated minerals can be absorbed directly and remain available and stable in the soil. Rather than spend a lot of time and effort explaining the relationships between chelates and micronutrients, we are going to quote one of our favorite sources for explaining soil for scientific laymen. "Micronutrients occur, in cells as well as in soil, as part of large, complex organic molecules in chelated form. The word chelate (pronounced "KEE-late") comes from the Greek word for "claw," which indicates how a single nutrient ion is held in the center of the larger molecule. The finely balanced interactions between micronutrients are complex and not fully understood. We do know that balance is crucial; any micronutrient, when present in excessive amounts, will become a poison, and certain poisonous elements, such as chlorine are also essential micronutrients. For this reason natural, organic sources of micronutrients are the best means of supplying them to the soil; they are present in balanced quantities and not liable to be over applied through error or ignorance. When used in naturally chelated form, excess micronutrients will be locked up and prevented from disrupting soil balance." Excerpted from "The Soul of Soil" by Grace Gershuny and Joe Smillie That's not advertising hype either, no product being sold there. That's just the words of a pair of authors who have spent their lives studying, building, and nurturing soils. Molasses' ability to act as a chelate explains it's presence in organic stimulant products like Earth Juice Catalyst. Chelates are known for their ability to unlock the potential of fertilizers, and some smart biological farmers we know are using chelating agents (like Humic Acid) to allow them to make dramatic cuts in normal levels of fertilizer application. One way to observe this reaction at work would be to mix up a solution of one part molasses to nine parts water and then soak an object which is coated with iron rust (like a simple nail for instance) in that solution for two weeks. The chelating action of the molasses will remove the mineral elements of the rust and hold them in that "claw shaped" molecule that Grace and Joe just described. As we've commented on elsewhere, it's not always possible to find good information about the fertilizer benefits of some products that aren't necessarily produced as plant food. But we've also found that by taking a careful look at nutritional information provided for products like molasses that can be consumed by humans, we can get a pretty decent look at the nutrition we can expect a plant to get as well. There are many brand's of molasses available, so please do not look at our use of a particular brand as an endorsement, our choice of Brer Rabbit molasses as an example is simply due to our familiarity with the product, one of our Grandmother's preferred this brand.

\nIt has to be it the sun for part of the day and must get some water, but don't drown it. They should start to bloom in the months of April-the end of May.
bloom is used to many things but the most commonly known meaning of bloom is "the flower of a plant"
This is a process that happens naturally. Flowers will usually bloom in the morning time (if they close up in the evening). They also usually bloom in the spring and summer time. It isn't something that you can really just make happen. If you have a flower that needs to bloom that is inside, you can… get a plant light at your local hardware store. (MORE)
First it wants only indirect sunlight, but as with any blooming plant that will be six hours a day. Then fertilize with a blooming soluble fertilizer every three weeks. Direct sunlight will burn the leaves.
Most chrysanthemums are obligate photoperiodic plants. That means that they are stimulated to bloom only by the length of daily darkness , which is known as the photoperiod . Most chrysanthemums are what is called 'short day' plants, although it might be more accurate to call them 'long night' pla…nts. They bloom only when the daily nighttime photoperiod lengthens to a critical number of minutes.. Preparation for flowering is initiated in periods of shorter nights (like in summer), when the buds that will eventually become flowers are created. The buds then lay dormant until the photoperiod lengthens to a critical point; the dormant buds awaken, grow and open to form the plant's blooms.. To cause a mum to bloom out of season, you need to provide it with the night length required to stimulate flowering. It can be kickstarted in the summer by covering the plant at the beginning or the end of the day for several hours. This effectively increases the nighttime for the plant and can initiate blooming. In greenhouses, horticulturists can force photoperiodic plants to bloom at any time of the year by artificially controlling the length of light and darkness. This allows us to have mums in the spring and poinsettias in the winter. (MORE)

I think it may be due to over feeding with plant N,P,K, minerals. The plant is happy and not bothering to flower. Flowering is a way of making seed in stressful conditions. Stop feeding it and water sparingly and I think it will be forced into bloom.
Plants in a garden can do nothing except to grow or to die. If the plant grows, and thrives, it will eventually bloom. But the plant doesn't have the luxury of getting up and moving over to a better spot of sunshine, or richer soil, or steadier water. People, on the other hand, CAN move elsewhere… looking for better conditions. But in searching for better light, sometimes you find worse soil, or too little rain. Many times, we see that "the grass is greener on the other side of the fence" not realizing that the cause is a heavy layer of manure fertilizer well pounded into the dirt. The admonition "Bloom where you're planted!" is to tell people to make the best of the conditions that they have, and learn to thrive. We will face other unknown dangers and challenges in trying to move to a different place in a different garden. (MORE)

I'm pretty sure they're the same thing, or atleast a synonym for bloom is blossom, and a synonym for blossom is bloom. If you want me to be specific, bloom has two O's while blossom has 2 S's Update 29/12/2010: Blossom - is generally the term used for the flowers of fruit bearing trees su…ch as pears, apples, cherries, plums and the like, especially those that flower in spring. Bloom - is used most for garden flowers, but can also be used for flowering trees, cacti and even grasses. It is a more generic term for the state of being 'in flower', with the flowers open rather than in bud (unopened) There are also other meanings for both words as is almost always the case for any English word: e.g. - A person can 'blossom' which means they are becoming more open, expansive and confident in themselves. - An idea can 'blossom', which means it is expanding and becoming more understood and accepted by more people. - You can have algal or fungal 'blooms' where there is an overabundance of algae growing in a lake or the sea, or fungus growing on something (e.g. on cheese, or overripe fruit) (MORE)
blossoms are flowers of fruit trees that open and flourish while bloom is a flower in perfection and full beauty.
Gladiolus â¢ The gladiolus is a showy flower that comes in a variety of colors, such as yellow, pink and orange. The flowers grow vertically along a stalk and are large and frilly. Gladiolus begin blooming in the spring and last all the way through the summer. Gladiolus make great flower arrange…ments. They need full sun and will thrive in clay soil, according to the North Carolina State University Extension.â¨â¨ Asiatic Lily â¢ Asiatic lilies bloom for two or three weeks in June or July. They are perennial bulbs and will come back year after year. Depending on the variety you choose, these lilies come in shades of pink, red, orange, yellow, white and bicolored blooms. Asiatic lilies thrive in either full sun or afternoon sun and can tolerate dry conditions, but may need some watering.â¨â¨ Dahlia â¢ Dahlias begin producing their large, showy blooms in early summer and continue all the way until the first frost. Their flowers can be a wide spectrum of colors, such as orange, pink, white or scarlet, among others. Plant your dahlias where they will receive full sun, in moist, fertile soil.â¨â¨ Hydrangea â¢ Hydrangeas have long been a summertime favorite. Their large, round blooms are made up of masses of small petals that can be blue, pink, purple or white. The color largely depends on the soil. Hydrangea bushes planted in acidic soil produces blue flowers, neutral soil yields white or cream flowers and alkaline soil will produce pink or purple blooms. The bushes will bloom from around April all the way to late summer. Plant your hydrangea where it will receive partial shade and in well-drained, organic soil.â¨â¨ Iris â¢ Irises provide a splash of bright color to your summer garden, with their blooms coming in many colors, such as blue, purple or pink. Irises also produce lots of bright green foliage in the summer time. Plant irises in well-drained soil, where they will receive partial shade.â¨â¨ Petunias â¢ Groundcover petunias spread quickly.â¨â¨Petunias are a type of summer blooming annual flowers with hundreds of named varieties within four distinct categories. Petunias with the largest blossoms are Grandiflora petunias with flowers that are at least 3 inches across and Multiflora petunias, which are more compact but offer a large number of blossoms. Milliflora petunias are compact plants with blooms that are up to 1 1/2 inches in diameter; Milliflora petunias are often used as container plants or edging plants. Groundcover petunias are the smallest of the four types with typical heights of up to 6 inches. Groundcover petunias spread quickly and work well on hillsides.â¨â¨ Lilies â¢ Lilies add vibrant color to your landscape.â¨â¨Lilies are perennial flowers that bloom during the summer months in a vast array of colors. Lilies are divided into nine horticultural divisions. Division 1 contains Asiatic Hybrids, which bloom anywhere from full sun to partial shade. Division 2 references Martagon Hybrids, which have whorled leaves and down-facing flowers. Candidum Hybrids are in Horticultural Division 3 lilies and are hybrids developed from European species and are not readily available. Division 4 contains American Hybrids that are native to North America. Division 5 is made up of Longiflorum Hybrids, elegant white trumpets that are not as hardy in the garden as other lilies. Trumpet and Aurelian Hybrids in Division 6 have waxy, trumpet-shaped flowers. Division 7 lilies are Oriental Hybrids that prefer partial shade and cooler summer conditions. Lilies that do not fit in other Horticultural Divisions are classified as Division 8. Division 9 contains Species lilies, which are wild, native lilies.â¨â¨ Hydrangeas â¢ Hydrangeas are flowering shrubs.â¨â¨Of the 23 known species of hydrangea, five are most widely cultivated in the United States. Hydrangea is a perennial shrub that blooms during the summer months with large clusters of blue, pink, white or purple flowers. The Endless Summer Mophead hydrangea is a popular variety as it blooms repeatedly all summer long. The Endless Summer blooms on old and new wood and is considered hardy in zones 4 through 9. The color of a hydrangea blossom depends on the acidity or alkalinity of the garden soil; most hydrangeas prefer pH levels between 4.5 and 6.5. Hydrangeas can grow in full sun in northern climates, but prefer afternoon shade in southern gardens.â¨â¨ Tuberous Begonias â¢ Begonias can grow in shade or partial sun.â¨â¨Another type of annual summer blooming flower is the tuberous begonia.

Because at night there is less light, so the chlorophyll inside the plant does not give of enough wave lengths of green, so the plant in result turns out less colorful. Answer: Flowers polinated by moths and other night flying insects do not need to be colourful as they are usually scented to a…ttract their insects. (MORE)
As with most night flowering plants the flowers are white ,as they are pollinated by moths and other night flying insects this makes them more easilly seen.
I had a snake plant for 45 years, and it bloomed twice, with only 1 flower stalk each time. I moved to a different house and the first two years it bloomed. The first time it had 7 stalks and the second year it had 5. I put it outside in the summer (but I always did), but this time it faced south, a…nd there was a porch overhang. We'll see what it does this year, the 3rd year after the move. (MORE)

Christmas cactuses do bloom every year usually about Christmas. I had one for years and it always bloomed. It does need a sunny window. At Christmas, there is more darkness than daylight. Hence a Christmas cactus needs a sunny window to get enough light. In summer months it does not need a sunny wi…ndow. - - - - - - Actually, Christmas cactuses require half daylight, half darkness.
