    After coming out of dormancy, when will it start to stalk?

    Some years mine don't. I always thought that meant they were dying but they keep managing to come back... My D. gigantea crapped out extra early this year though, and I fear the worst.

    how old are they? Did they start as a plant, a tuber, or seeds? i have seedlings started this year and some of them are starting to make a stem. i have some that were started last year again from seeds and a hand full have started to bolt, but the rest haven't. Not sure if there is an environmental cue that tells them to go, might be more a size of the tuber.....

    as long as they are not dieing back i would not worry. i think the first year they are sort of touchy when transplanted (tubers). Keep um green and well fed for as long as you can. Then next year hope for the best. i think it is mostly a critical temperature that tells them to go dormant in addition to the change in day length. Least that is what I have inferred based on some keeping leaves all summer long at my place....
