As we all know, fall will be here in a matter of weeks for us up north.
My small d. binata has been growing well on my porch, basking in the morning sun and pigging out on gnats. I'm worried about what to do with it come fall. I've heard about it's dormancy period which is about 3 months, right? It dies down to it's roots and then comes back. But winter in Minnesota is much long than 3 months and I don't think I could prolong it's rest without it rotting away.
My plan for it is:
Leave it outside during early fall until it dies down.
Put it in a cool (50 - 60 degrees) basement window which recieves a small bit of light and keep the soil just damp.
When it starts to grow again, put it in my mini-greenhouse until the weather warms.
The problem is that it will become too big for my mini greenhouse and then what?...
Or could I just grow it indoors on a somewhat bright windowsill with my houseplants? It would probably still go dormant...
