    WOW, I had no idea, and here I was worrying about what to do since they are begining to go dormant. Nice to know that I don't have to worry.

    I just got a Cobra Lily from Home Depot today. Should I put it through dormancy or skip it this year?

    I also got one of mine smaller ones from HD. I let it skip dormancy the first year and it did fine.

    This is way too funny! Exactly 2 years ago I purchased a cobra lily from Lowes. I posted about it and Bugweed, who was a total unknown to me at that time, sent me a PM, imploring me to get it into dormancy. I got it as low as the 50's for temps, but I don't think it ever went dormant. Of course that was the first plant to be subjected to one of my experiments - the infamous stream, several months later. My current cobra lily is residing outside, on a porch fence, Indian Summer, still growing.

    You read my mind April! But since you didn't say 1000, you must have had some success [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_m_32.gif[/img].

    For all of you saying (1), here is my mature response! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/mad.gif[/img]

    Try from seed, guys. Then when the weak ones croak, they'll be too small to notice, and you'll be left with just a hardy batch. Worked great for me. You'll never even know you did a bad job! :)
