    Is the dormancy triggered by length of the day light or temperature? I think day light is def shorter and it's cooler in the morning and at night now compared to august.

    I'll ask the seller if it's a fertile or non-fertile hybrida. I'd def prefer it to be fertile, so hopefully it'll produce some seeds.

    Thanks everyone, always learning a lot from ya'll

    Dormancy is influenced by both light and temperature
    Come to me flies and crawling bugs. This plant wants to give you great big hugs
    Aren't I pretty, don't I smell good? I'd come to you if I could
    But I can't so you must come to me, I'm sure we will get along splendidly

    That depends on location, but if the hybrida is one of the common forms which originated from more northern locations, then day length will influence it more than temperature will. As days shorten, it will shut down even if the middle of the day stay hot.
    Everything has a reason, whether big or small. Never underestimate the power of what is or is not.
    There is far more to everything than meets the eye.

    I've read a couple places that D. filiformis (and hybrids including D. filiformis) tend to go dormant on a sort of random basis in cultivation. Right now I have 2 D. filiformis Florida Red growing in the same pot, under lights. One of the plants apparently went dormant a month ago or so, and the other is still actively growing. Has anyone else experienced this?

    Here's some examples of the fibrous growth around the hibernaculum. It varies from year to year, last year it covered the winter bud completely as often happens with D. filiformis.

    D. hybrida "Butterfly Valley, CA"



    D. californica 'Portland Sunrise'









    D. filiformis 'Florida Giant'
