    Nice job man! Keep it up, and maybe you'll have flowers in a couple years!

    Keep it cool during the winter and wait for it to become pot-bound.

    should reniformis dry out in the winter for dormancy?
    I have a grow rack 80 day and 50 at night. Its in LFS and doing well with frequent waterings, but I read that it goes dormant in winter and should be dry.
    should I just water less, or do I wait until it goes dormant to do this?

    How do you tell if it is dormant? When it loses all its leaves? Mine usually does that in the summer.

    I'm letting mine dry out right now. I haven't watered it for about 2 months. I'm giving the kind of treatment many grows in the UK use - a peaty media with cool/dry winter temps. It experienced temps down to 45F, along with my U. asplundii. SOMEONE accidentally watered the asplundii in the cold weather, so many of its leaves rotted off.

    The leaves on the reniformis still look happy!

    rotted off or did it just decide that was the time it was going dormant? sorry.....asplundii is one of my all time frustrating species......SOB would go dormant at a drop of a hat.......couple times a year......

    i have never flowered my reniformis and maybe a cool dry winter would get me that, but i wouldnt wait for it to tell me it was going dormant i would just gradually reduce water levels and dropping temps.....but like i said, ive never seen mine go truly dormant, just periods where growth slows but doesnt really stop.....but im growing in a basement with no seasonal clues either.....

    It was going strong.

    It wasn't too much of a loss because I can still see the tubers through the pot (it's clear and it's got holes everywhere).

    Yeah, I read an ICPS article online that said you can give the reniformis the cold dry treatment, and then all of a sudden heat them up a little and give them fertilizer! Mine's basically stopped growing, since it's been outside.

    I'm gonna use some maxsea fertilizer, like I did during the summer.

    By the way, my geminiloba got frozen. Rrrrr....

    There might be one healthy stolon left, and I can always get a new one. I'm also getting 2 forms of U. striatula this spring.
