    Hi everyone =)!

    One more question to send you way ^_^.
    I know binatas (and multifidias for that mater...) need their beauty sleep in winter...but what does that imply exactly? Cold and dark as usual, or just a bit drier and a shorter photoperiod?
    If the dragon is bigger than his treasure, it's not worth the effort.

    some members of the complex such as marstons dragon and multifida "extrema" dont require a dormancy.

    i treat my binatas like any other temperate plant.

    I got a D. multifida extrema a little more than a year ago, and it has been continually growing in wet conditions, outdoors, in full sun, in zone 10. The leaves died a few weeks ago. Then about a week or two later, it began to grow again from the roots in several places. Its now flowering. Younger plants grown from leaf cuttings of the original plant did not die back.

    *please deposit collective wisdom here* [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_m_32.gif[/img] Cooler, less photoperiod, and drier conditions are implied. From what I have read, there are two basic types in circulation. One that goes through a dormant period and one that just slows down. Mine is a California X Hawaii and slows down.

    That's it Jim, add more confusion in my poor little head.
    And I was preparing pychologically to send them into dormancy too! Now you tell me they might not need it =P.
    Well, I guess we'll see about that.
