    Looking good. This clone, for no good reason, will sometimes reduce leaf size without actually going dormant. It'll sort of flux down then up then down then up and then stable back out again. At least under my conditions. I have no clue why it does this though.

    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
