    Ya, it does. Be very respectful of its Dormancy. Although it doesn't fully stop growing, you should give it the conditions in which it naturaly lives.

    Ya. Did some reading and saw some reccomendations to put them into dormancy from about Nov 25 to March 1 or so. I was planning on putting them in a spare refridgerator...temperature prolly around 40 F or so.

    Oh if anyone can give any suggestions for how to package VFT's and Cobra Lilly's for dormancy in a fridge I'd appreciate it.

    Exclamation

    Kinda early to worry about dormacy dont ya think
    what you do is take the plant out of the soil to do that take a clump of soil around the roots and swish it around in a bowl of water. That will get the soil off without disturbing the roots too much,
    Then you will need some antifungal stuff Im not sure which works I dont use the refrdgerator for dormacy. ok so after the fungus stuff is applied to the roots wrap the roots in a wet paper towel then put the plants in a baggie and your set. Then check them every once in awhile to make sure everything is still fine no fongus or mildew.

    For fungicides you can use 3336 or Banrot (both offered by PFT.) I have never used the fridge method either but I would be more inclined to use damp sphag than a paper towel because sphag also has a natural tendancy to inhibit fungus.

    If you don't use the fridge method, what DO you use?

    The alternate method to use is the natural method!!! In the wild they don't hop out of the ground and into a fridge! I just leave mine outside. That way the light level and temperatures lower, instead of having your plant go from 70F w/light to 40F w/no light for 24/7. Where do you live?
