Mike, how long did it take from the fist sign of sheath appearing at the center to open bloom?
Mine (the ones that blasted and one that's been in sheath for months now) took so long. I'm about to throw them in the garbage bin!! hahaha
I didn't keep accurate records, but it may have been as long as 4-5 months, but for the first 2-3 months the bud remained in the sheath. You could tell something was going to happen because you could see the sheath get thicker each week until it finally split open. (I will neither confirm nor deny that I may have used a tool to open the sheath and examine the bud before it emerged.) Mike
