Blooming for the first time in 4 years.
Also in Michigan but practically all of my water hyacinth bloomed this year. Odd!no blooms here in Mich, either, and we've had more than enough sun+humidity. I did put them in late and they were small; only now do they have any growth and spread to them but I've routinely had little luck getting them to bloom other than maybe a couple per bunch. Shame, as they really are great looking flowers.
can you describe your exact setup? When placed, any additional fertilizing, crowded, etc? I know someone on GPF suggested they'd bloom more if placed more on the back/in wet soil as opposed to floating, so I tried that but so far no difference, imo.Also in Michigan but practically all of my water hyacinth bloomed this year. Odd!
I’ve seen them bloom in PA at the nearby plant store. They just have to be in complete sun all the time.
I personally dislike them. They enable mosquitoes to hide from fish.
