    It depends on the species, most of the ones from N. America and Europe will need a winter dormancy. Tropicals and sub-tropicals like D. capensis and D. adelae grow fine all year long as do most pygmies and petiolaris. Plants like the tuberous and South African winter growers need a dry dormancy during the hotter summer months.

    Which species are you specifically inquiring about?

    Nope, spatulata can be kept under the same conditions year-round.

    I just got one from **********s that is bareroot and that was marked dormant. So now what do I do? I stuck it in the 'fridge. But should I pot it up and let it come out of dormancy now? Or should I keep it in the fridge for the winter and pot it up in the spring?

    Thanks for any help you can offer.
