    I got mine back in 06, and it had ended up being Venosa:

    That looks great!! I can't wait for mine to red up a bit. Here's mine right now:



    Meh. Do you think it looks to be in too poor a shape to put through dormancy now, considering I just liberated it from its death cube this weekend?

    Heh, thanks! Although the Carnivore Queen up there is a tough act to follow with her lovely Venosa!!

    So what do you think... to allow dormancy, or not to allow dormancy?

    That's tough. I'd let it grow for a little bit and then give it dormancy. Let it adjust to the photo period and go dormant naturally if possible.


    But then again, If I had that plant, I'd plop it outside in a 6-inch pot and not worry about it all winter. My weather is nice for that.

    But I can tell you have a fine purp. Tis got good genes, tis got good genes.

    BTW: your plants are packed up and shipping tomorrow. Let me know how they arrive.

    Nice! I'll pack your tools up and ship them first thing in the morning! Looking forward to it.

    OK, I'll let this sarr get its bearings. I'm gradually reducing my photoperiod down to 9 hours per day to get my pygmy dews to get their gemmae on. Hopefully my tropical dews, pings, and my nep won't be too offended by this. I understand that they should all get on just fine. But I digress.

    My grow rack will likely see temperatures in the low 60s or even high 50s once the winter really hits. As I'm in an apartment, I unfortunately don't have a place to grow my plants outside! So I have to make do with a grow rack, for better or worse. If it goes dormant, then all the better. If not, I'll make sure and give it enough time to go dormant next year.

    Heh, I'm digging these death cubes!!
