    need dormancy?

    I have P. moranensis, P. esseriana and P. cyclosecta.
    Do these even need to go through a dormancy and produce succulent leaves?
    My friend grows orchids and I think his P. moranensis is in the same conditions all year and it spreads all over the green house!

    thanks for the advice.

    Mexican pings don't go dormant, they just change leaf form and no, it isn't necessary. They grow very happily all year, even when in their succulent form.

    I like to give them a cooler, lesser photoperiod, less water from fall through winter. They will have the shorter, stubbier leaves for that time and tend to flower in late winter.
