    Ok, so my intermedias flowered like 2-1 months ago, I collected the seeds, took them out of the pots, wrapped the roots in moist toweling, put them in ziplock bags and stuck them in the fridge...
    About a month passes in cold dark vegetable section... I decided to check on them, to see if they needed some moisture... and what do I find? New leafs and FLOWERS!!!!!! Personally I have no idea what so ever as to how this has happened... but there it is lol
    Any suggestions?

    They flowered [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/confused.gif[/img], did the flowers make seed and did those seeds grow again in the fridge :P. Do you have any pictures of this. I guess you can put them on a windowsill.

    And now you know that D. intermedia, along with D. capensis, D. adelae, D. spatulata, and U. subulata are the weeds of the CP world! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_k_ani_32.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/laugh.gif[/img]

    There are different varieties D. intermedia and this that are in the southern climes don't need the dormancy, while the temperate ones do. I'm just not sure which is which! I've got the Cuba, St. Rosa, North Carolina Brunswick County and Sp. Cuba 1. The Brunswick County formed a hibernaculum just by sitting at the window sill.
