Not D. falconeri. While the standard guidance is to reduce moisture when the leaves get smaller - I haven't found any 'guaranteed' method yet. Seems that the more of these plants I grow, the more I see permutations on the dormancy theme as well as exceptions.

As Pyro noted, some plants seem to 'cycle' up and down through their growing season - 'tricking' you into thinking they may be going dormant. However, when you assume its a head fake - they really go dormant. I have a D. lanata & a D. ordensis which just did this. Ironically, the D. lanata was a pup from a larger plant that has refused to go dormant for almost 2 years...

For some additional reading on the topic, here's an older thread with some interesting information: Petio dormancy
