Last week I bought two nice, beautifully blooming plan. after some research these turned out to be the Primula Poyanthus, usually referred to as the Polyanthus. Yesterday i bought four more, since these have really grown onto me (no pun intended ).
These flowers are really pretty and kind of have grown onto me, as i already said. This made me very much want to keep these beautiful plants as some nice company indoors. I did my research and found out that these are really hard to grow inside. They tend to not bloom again the next year, and are regarded as annuals when kept inside, whereas they are regarded as perennials when planted outside.
Today i also polinate some of these plants with a brush (although i will use a q-tip from now on for that) , so i could get some seeds from these plants, if I would not succeed in getting them to bloom next year. (so i can plant the seeds and get new flowers, instead of buying new ones, I kind of prefer growing them myself)
This was a rather lengthy intro, meant as background information, to my question:
Does anyone have any experience with (succesfully) growing Polyanthus indoors, be it from seed, or store-bought? Are there any tips you possibly would like to share?
I would really love to keep these inside and close to me, so now I'm trying to look for some adivce form people with any possible experience.
Thank you in advance!
