    Cool Petiolaris group in dormancy

    I thought you might like to see what petiolaris group look like when in dormancy. There are varying degrees of dormancy so don't be alarmed if your plant's leaves start shrinking back to the center.

    I try to keep them warm. The pots do not stand in water, but i do keep the medium moist while in dormancy. I've lost a couple when i've kept them dry!

    Awesome Pics! Everybody tells me to listen to my dews, they will tell me what to do. These help me understand dew talk.

    THANKS

    Peter,
    Thanks for sharing the pics. Many exhibit the classic dormancy-induced growth pattern. Post again in 2-4 months and let us know how well the plants come out of this state (especially the D. lanata & D. ordensis).
    All the best,
    Ron

    Very nice. I've jus recently stumbled onto the fact that some of my younger ordensis in larger pots do better than the ones in tiny pots, as they don't dry up as fast between waterings. When the rooms 95+ F, and I'm at work, it can get ugly quick.

    Ron, I'll be sure to post the post-dormancy pics in a bit!
    I like Homer's suggestion of larger pots. I also find that the small pots can dry out quickly....especially when it hits 100 degrees in the tank!!

    If I may be so bold, I don't know if that falconeri classifies as dormant. When mine go they pretty much disappear, no surface leaves at all. But maybe that is just mine...

    I have a few plants breaking dormancy cycle I will try and shot them in the next few days and add them in here.

    JMurph,

    What exactly would you like to know? D. falconeri does go dormant and it is evident by a steady reduction of leaf size. The "inward spiral" as it were... When this occurs I like to prop mu plants on styrofoam blocks that raise them so that, when I water, the pot is no more than 1-2mm deep in the water. This allows for just a trace of moisture to be drawn up by the pot. Once the plant breaks dormancy I drop it back down and it grows like a weed.
