    I thought i would add a couple more pics of D. falconeri. This one was a tougher dormancy challenge for me than the others in the group.

    It almost appeared dead for several months! All the leaves turned brown and there were NO new leaves in the center.

    It is just now starting to wake up!

    Those of you who have D. falconeri may want to take a look...

    Peter.

    Now that looks like a dormant falconeri. Scary when they look like that isn't it?

    Well let's see what months would it be dorment? How long does it stay dorment? What triggers this? Is it hot/dry or cold/dry or cold/wet? What should I do during this time? I need pretty much everything.

    In that thred the last post Homer put that light levels are the key and to keep them not so wet. 12-13 hours of light and his change. I have my timer set to about 14 hours and it has my neps in there too. How many hours of light should I give them? When should I start to decrese the hours so they can have a dormancy? Mine right now are real red and are starting to get dew because I put them closer to the light. The temps up there are also about 93.

    Supposedly petiolaris complex do not require dormancy and they'll grow fine without it by just keeping them wet. I don't think I've seen a post on this forum where petiolaris has not gone dormant though.

    JM,

    There is no need to induce dormancy!! I would rather not have them go dormant, they just decide on their own. Your conditions and your plant sound great!! Red leaves, high light, and hot temps are a good thing for D. falconeri. Don't change unless you see signs of dormancy!

    Hope that helps!
    Peter

    Wow I was under the inpression that it needs to have a dormancy. This is good news. If it likes my conditions I might try some more from this group and get rid of the divas. Who wants a hamata?
