Additional information
These have become easier for the average home grower to produce perfect blooms, although they need to be provided with some special care and attention. Experts can keep these blooming for around 10 months or more a year - with the use of artificial lighting, correct temperatures and conditions. Basically, they can flower all year round, depending on how well they are cared for. You can expect the flowers to bloom for a few days - and up to a few weeks, although the length of time they flower depends very much on - the environment/conditions.
