    The only pygmies I've grown to this point are scorpioides. I've had no trouble with them, but from what I hear, they are these easiest (no dormancy required).

    I was gifted a small pot of a pygme hybrid (don't remember the parrents, and there was no label....puchella x something maybe? I know I butchered that spelling), and I want to make sure I'm not backwards here.

    Pygmies are winter growers with a summer dormancy, right? They like to sleep when it's hot & dry? Just want to be sure....

    depends on the species/hybrid..............i grew some wet year round for several years before they croaked(for unrelated reasons, think big crash) there are some that need a drier dormancy but not all will. unfortunatly i dont remember which i had. need to get somemore. i think they are kinda like the Mexi Pings, some ppl have alot of luck not paying attention to "The Rules"

    like i said i t depends on the species. pygmy's were one of my first CP's i recieved the gemmae about a month after finding this forum. this was while Tamlin was still doing his big giveaway and i asked for some of the really easy species/hybrids. i threw them all in a large pot and hoped for the best. the pot did fine, even produced gemmae for me several times being kept constantly wet year round. but like i said these were beginers species and not some of the rarer stuff that would likely need the drier period. the pot would still be going good if my one plant stand hadnt collapsed. so i guess i need to find more of the lil guys.

    I've grown these (and some of their hybrids) for three years without a dormancy. They never seem to die out... I just keep getting larger and larger colonies.
