    I just got a P. primifulora (spelling?), at least I think it is . Anyway, it is very near dormancy up here in NH (Zone 5) and I do not know how I should prepare for dormancy on a Ping. Any help would be great!

    if you got it from ********** you prob. don't need to. it is just out of tissue culture. I don't even think prim. needs dormancy. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]

    I didn't get it from pft.com. I got it at Lowe's and I am pretty sure it is tissue culture. But what should I do?I can't just leave it outside all winter! Should I put it under some growlights?

    I highly recommend cheap 4 foot fluorescent fixtures, plenty of them, lots of light is good.

    Might be mistaken but think this plant comes from Florida area and not in need of any dormancy. Also thinking this one likes to be in the shade or filtered light.

    Yes, grow this plant in a tropical-like condition. It does not need a dormancy.

    I too recently did the honorable thing and am trying to save a P. prim. from certain Lowes induced doom.

    I have it on a south facing windowsill, the pot is equipped with ye olde clear plastic cup to hold in humidity, and I water it about every other day with misting in between. I also repotted in a peat/perlite mix.

    After a month, it seems to be doing just fine--though a single month may be too early to tell.

    --later! i like to play with things awhile...before annhiliation--
