The whole ball looks black with no tuft of visible green. I have to admit defeat due to lack of knowledge, I've "killed" the plant [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_h_32.gif[/img]
I will try to select those tropical variety next time since there's no way I can mimic the winter over here. Otherwise I'll know roughly when to put them in the fridge for dormancy. It's all about trial and error now.
I've just potted up some gemmae from john v.d. w and after reading through they're pygmies. In my weather does this mean I'll not get any gemmae from the plants? Or will putting them into the fridge do the trick?
