    D.filiformis 'red' supposedly does not need a dormancy. I have heard that D'Amato has grown this plant for 3 years as a tropical and it is doing well. It is likely to be filiformis 'red' if that is the plant they promised you.

    Cp2k is right, I'm wrong [img]http://www.**********.com/iBhtml/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] Skip the dormancy, I had known that part at one point but had already forgotten it.

    filmiformis 'red' eh? Sounds liek california carnivores. Well, it is a tropical plant which needs no dormancy. Peter 'amato told me they do good in terrium and they dont get too tall. He also said that they might not survive a dormacy, so dont try. The whole plant is totaly red! Very cool!

    Interestingly enough this is a recently discovered plant, although the population of typical plants was well known. Apparently no one had looked in the right place at the right time. My seedlings are up, and I am very excited at the prospect of seeing a different form of filiformis. I have also heard they do not require dormancy, but I think I will give it cooler conditions in the winter. Maybe not a hard freeze like the other filiformis get, but certainly a cool rest will be in order. Keep us informed as how your plants do, and how you are growing them. To go where no man has gone before.......

    I've heard of the d. filiformis 'red' (all-red form) and seen pics. I'd love to have one myself. But I don't even have the typical one yet. Well...I HAD one but it basically didn't survive it shipping ordeal. Good luck with yours, Chris.
