    D. Filiformis...Dormant?

    All the dewy leaves have died back and left this green ball..thing...
    And I haven't been able to find any pictures, but is this what a dormant Filiformis looks like?
    The temperature's only dropped slightly at night, so it doesn't seem like it'd be enough to do this, but eh..

    Yep. That is a hibernaculum. Most of mine have formed one already except for a few of the smaller ones.

    filiformis ssp filiformis goes dormant pretty early. My large one started to die back in August.

    I have had D. filiformis form a cottony ball at the crown. Daylength, I think, is the dominant variable, followed by temperature.

    Mine have the cottony growth too but yours definitely looks dormant from what I've been told.

    Your hibernaculum looks just like the one of D. hybrida.
