BUD-BUILDING:

Scientifically called "indeterminate inflorescence," it means "continuing to grow at the apex" or end of the scape. A pattern of growth on scapes in which buds continue to form as lower buds open. A scape showing this characteristic will get taller through the bloom season. It is a somewhat unreliable trait, dependent upon weather and growing conditions. Later bloom tends to be sparse.
