I just posted a new thread about this in the Conservancy section, but to summarize-I just got home from Lowe's with a gigantic Cobra plant (main pitcher around a foot tall) and while I'm starting to really question the origins of the plant, I do have it now so I need to make sure that if it was poached, that it not die in vain.
I've grown them before with varying degrees of success and even had one through the winter do well under lights only to die in the summer heat. Obviously, for this picky a plant to grow to this size, it has to have been in good conditions for a while. My question: should I wean it from the death tube and let it go dormant and hope that it had a healthy summer?
I was thinking of weaning it, growing it under some lights for a month or so before putting it in the fridge for a shortened dormancy of a few months. Any thoughts? I don't want to subject it to a north Ohio winter right now.
