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 have got two D. binata var, dichotoma 'Giant Type'. One growing outside in the sun covered with some shade netting and another in my house under 6x t8 lights.
The one outside is dormant most of the year and only grows for me during spring and goes dormant in summer until next spring, not sure if it's the heat outside that causes it to go dormant but it has always followed this dormancy pattern.
The one growing under lights has not gone dormant yet but It might still when I start reducing the photo-period in my grow rack. This is a plant grown from leave cuttings from the one growing outside and is not as large yet and still fits in the grow rack for now.
I had a chat to another grower in my area and she has got the exact same species growing outside and her's also goes dormant in summer and only grows during spring.

I have way more D. binata "dwarf red" than I know what to do with and will be giving some away over the summer, fyi.
