    My whole Mexican ping collections spent its growing season on the grow rack, under lights, next to a south-facing set of glass windows. For the winter I moved them to window sills to draw the cold and still pick up the lower photoperiod cues of the window sill light and almost bone-dry APS. Some plants, consequently, displayed "winter leaves". About 6 types have graced me with flowers this past month. I was hoping for more.

    After 3-4 years I've yet to get flowers. I put them outdoors in Jan in hopes the cold weather might stimulate them. All they've done so far is progress even further into the winter leaf mode. Temperatures have dipped into the high 30sF at night.

    Aloha Jim,
    if they are photo period sensitive even the smallest amount of light at the wrong time can mess them up. For poinsettia all you needed was 30 mins of light sometime in the night to interrupt the night and poof no flowers. Maybe something similar is happening for you and NaN?

    The other problem is are they short day triggered or respond to the days getting longer.....

    That could be. It never gets truly dark for a Mainland city boy. There is a darker corner I could move the P. cyclosecta to though.

    Being indoors, they are always subject to intermittent extraneous light going and off. I may put them outside again, but this time in Sterilite containers, that have holes along the perimeter, starting from one inch above the bottom. I've had too many bad experiences with plants being under water and scattered and "blackening crown".
