    Yeah Kirk,

    lights are not necessary. mine are in a garage with one north-facing window. I have no problems at all with them.

    Mine are outside, temps anywhere from 35F at night to 55-60F during the day. I have flavas flowering, so I can't say that flourescents had anything to do with this, but I sure would like to pin it on something!!! Checked again, and here comes a Wilkerson bog s. moorei flower. Photoperiod?

    Sunlight hours here are 7:30 am to 5:30 pm right now. 10 hours. This is a first for me. Having plants awake before March is rare, and April is usually when it all starts.

    That's really strange, Bugweed. you're in northern Cal, right?
    Photoperiod can't be the cause. We're down here in the sub-tropics and this morning at dawn I took a stroll among the benches to see hundreds of Sarrs in a deep sleep. Michelle has actually started to repot and divide...starting with the flavas and then the leucos.

    I've tried reasoning with them, but my pleas fell on deaf leaves. They seem to think its time. They even convinced my s. alata, aerolated form. Sending up leaves right now. Me? i am scratching my head watching the hair fall out, and am in wonder. NEVER in my growing experience have I ever seen this, so I guess I will go with the flow and see what happens next.

    Kirk...I think the fact that you have them under lights is the problem. Unless you have them set to a short photo period. As some have stated here, they don't really need light during dormancy (since some people toss the rhizomes in the fridge). They needs cooler temps and less light...as they would be experiencing in their native habitat.
