A pair of rhizomes with sprouts. :)
I found not each variety of Kohleria produces well-developed rhizomes as usual ... especially the beloved ones. XD But no need to pity too much on these unexpected things. Last year I put extra rhizomes into the ground in order to save efforts of potting all of them. It seems a good strategy because they grow by themselves throughout a year, normally rest in the hot summer and wake up to sprout in the autumn ... unfortunately I don't have any more ground for the rhizomes.
The Kohlerias on the ground are full of energy.
After potting the rhizomes in September of Taipei, the Kohleria grows faster when the temperature drops day by day. More or less than 5 months growth, the plants could be well-developed and ready for the mass flowers. I'm always looking for the most payoff with reasonable efforts, so the timing control is important in terms of getting best flower quality of the year. The flower color of Kohleria is extremely showy if it blooms in the right season. Too cold or too hot can't reveal the true color of Kohleria. So determine your best time for rhizomes !
The great blooming view of Kohleria once a year.
