    My Cobra Lily doesn't need a dormancy because it's the coolest and most kick-butt Cobra Lily on the block...

    ...and I just recently bought it from Home Depot so it can skip dormancy this year [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_n_32.gif[/img]

    But the first part is true too, just in case anyone's wondering [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/cool.gif[/img]

    When I bought one from Lowes (plastic cube) two Novembers ago, and posted about it, Bugweed sent me a PM and implored me to put into dormancy.

    I'm doing the same thing you're doing LLeopardGGecko. I got my cobra lily from Home Depot. It was outside for about half the summer and did do some growing. I decided to take it in and put it in my grow chamber when the temps were hitting lows of 50's (late Sept, october?). It's growing good right now.

    While you are supposed to put these plants into dormancy, the ICPS doesn't think it is bad to skip the first year dormancy to help it catch up on growing. So that's what I'm going to do. It would be suicide and shock to throw it outside right now with the rest of them. If you want to put your Cobra lily outside now, you'd have to adapt it to the temps gradually (if you live somewhere cold like I do). So I don't think it would do any harm to leave it inside this winter, but next winter I would definately let it go into dormancy.
