    I have 2 D. Spatulata and 2 'white leaf' D. Capensis . Do either of these require dormancy? I currently have these guys growing outdoors in full sun. The spatulata is growing at an alarming rate with new plants popping up constantly forming beautiful clumps with globs of purpleish dew. The Capensis is growing nicely but the stalks are a bit short, I'm assuming because of being in full sun. What conditions do these guys like during winter? I'm in Buffalo, NY where we'll get 20F temps and lower during winter.

    Nope, no dormancy for either of these. Just bring them inside for the winter when it gets below 40 degrees

    Mine did fine with lower photoperiod and the lower temps provided by the window sill. Those two species can stay on window sills all year round.

    Very good advice. Think I'll take those guys in at the appropriate time so they can spend the winter in the window sill. Thanks.

    Just a question: How much does the growth slow down on these plants in the winter? I've never grown them through winter before, so I'm just curious.

    Does this mean you'll send a fellow Western New Yorker some REAL chicken wings and some Dunkirk ice cream? [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_m_32.gif[/img]

    Neither of those require dormancy.
