I've heard mixed replies on whether or not to give C. follicularis a dormancy period or not. In its natural habitat, the plant apparently gets a brief couple months of dormancy with light frosts at night. Some say that in order for cephalotus to grow strongly in cultivation a similar dormancy is required. Others say that cephalotus dormancy is "not necessary" and back their statements up with nice looking plants. I'd like to adress this issue and perhaps have a bit of a debate. Is cephalotus dormancy required or not? Go!
