Default Re: Dwarf Cav about to bloom???

That is not a sign of blooming. It may be about to bloom, but that splitting is not related to whether it's going to bloom soon or not. The way to tell if a bloom is coming is by the size and age of the plant along with the presence of a "flag leaf", a shorter leaf which comes before the bunch.
