Magnolia flowers in January

Recently we had some work done on the outside of our home.  In the process a large branch was broken off our saucer magnolia.  As an experiment I brought the magnolia branch inside and cut the branch into two groups of stems.  One half I put into water and placed in a sunny window.  The other half was put into dirt in a shady window of the home.  Much to my delight the magnolia placed in the sunny window started to flower about a week later.  No action on the other half of the magnolia yet but I will keep ya posted.
