    Hi everyone,
    I think I'm going to get a p. primufilora from pft. I was wondering how warm dormancy can be for the plant to actually go dormant. (is 65 degrees cool enough?)

    i have had much luck (many others have also) by not letting primiflora go dormant. It is considered by some as an annual, so i just let mine grow year round. No ill side effects.

    Thanks. I think I'll try that once I get it. But if it is an annual, then how long will it live after you get it? (since you order a plant that is already pretty old) [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/confused.gif[/img]

    well, in all respect, people say its an annual, since it usually dies away after a dormancy. it usually returns via small buds. I never give mine a dormancy, and i have kept a flowering sized individual for about 2 years now (i got it as an old one). THe leaves may grow big and small from time to time, and many older leaves produced plantlets.
