    if nothing comes from the main point. you can keep it watered and wait for new plants to come from the roots. or dig the plant up your self, examine the roots, if they are viable and healthy then make your own root cuttings.

    I bring my D. binata group plants inside when it starts getting cold. It's kind of annoying to have them scrambling over all my other indoor plants and growing up into the light fixtures, but it gets cold enough in my area that I've lost points after a few weeks of freezing temperatures. D. binata doesn't mind growing year-round, so why stop it?

    That's odd, 48*F shouldn't be an issue at all. I believe I've read that they can handle light frosts. Heck I overwinter my VFTs and Cephs in a back basement room under lights that sometimes gets down to ~40*F. Random D. binata plants in the trays have flourished in the environment..... Hmmm....

    Sounds like they either got 1) dessicated, 2) fungal infection in dark cool garage or 3) random bad-luck death disease (remind me to not let you bring any of #3 over here)

    I tipped the pot today to see what's going on, if anything.
    Last year the growth was emerging long before it was warm enough to put the plants outside. I guess it's just taking extra long to start growing this year, as new growth from the roots can be seen.



    It's also root bound. The whole bottom is solid roots. Maybe I'll trim a few off to start new plants.
