My grumichama is flowering early this year compare to last.  Warmer weather maybe.

Mine are opening up in the next few days as well, really hoping for fruit set this time.

I'm still waiting for mine to flower I haven't checked since last month.

I have in a location where not much sun hits it. Wondering if this can be a factor.

Is yours planted in the ground or in container?

This one is in the ground and full sun. 

I have 2 more in the containers and partial sun, they are not flowering yet.  I brought them at the same time and all of them were flowered last year, but no fruit.

Do the leaves get the taco effect and start looking bad in full sun? I have mine in mostly shade and itís really pretty but doesnít set much fruit. Been considering acclimating to sunnier location

Hey Salty...
What's the "Taco Effect" you reference?

I tried mine in full sun, immediate burn. Tried them in dappled shade, but wasn't enough sun and they languished. Put them in the greenhouse during the winter when light and heat is lower and they adapted well to full sun now.

Mine taco'd (leaves curling up) in the full sun but also got brown and sunburnt.

I have mine in 25g pots with water basins now with a few inches of water and they seem to like that.

Mine loves full sun. Just make sure it is watered enough. Got my first crop last fall. Good fruit, but not good enough for me.
