Beautiful. How do you get them to grow so beautifully, with so many leaves?

Still waiting for mine.

Thanks everyone. Gee19, I really don't fuss too much with them but I am very faithful to feeding them regularly. The fertilizer is very important for the following year's blooms. I think it also makes for more deep green leaves. After the flowers fade I cut the flower stalk off. IO don't cut off the leaves. I bring the plant back down to my basement where it still gets light from a window. I start feeding with half strength fertilizer once a month. As soon as it warms up outside I bring them all on my patio where they they get a little filtered sun and continue to water them and feed them once a month. Around September first I cut off the leaves and bring them back down to my basement and I stop watering them and let them completely dry out. Some people take the bulbs out of the posts but I leave mine in their pots. Around December first they are ready to come up to a sunny window and I start watering them and they start to grow. They don't get any fertilizer until after they bloom.

Thanks for that, Mike, I will continue to wait patiently for mine to bloom and then I will follow your instructions - and keep my fingers crossed too :)
