    Unhappy

    Anyone growing D. lanata successfully? I just got one and will be planting it tonight. I plan on using a 1:1 peat sand mix. I will be keeping it in a terrarium.

    My main questions are about watering and dormancy.

    Does this plant require dormancy? Summer or winter?

    Do I need to change my watering habits during dormancy or remove the plant from the watering tray?

    Any other advice would be appreciated.

    Thanks

    In its natural habitat, D.lanata does have a dry dormancy in the winter, but this is not required in cultivation. Keep the plants hot(80F+) during the day and very warm at night year-round. I would recommend keeping the plants on a tray during the spring-summer. During the winter, keep the soil moist.
