    O.K, heres a quick update about my winndowsill growing U.alpina:

    Its been growing like a champ, but I have had a major problem with fungus. The fungus seems to have gone away now though, and it is happy.

    Now my question:

    What do I do for its dormacy? Or shall I skip dormacy?

    Thank you for any help,

    My plants dont really die back, they just stop producing new leaves for awhile. I dont keep the plant in tray water, so all I really do is reduce the watering until the tips of the live shpagnum begin to look dry, and I try to keep it right there: dry tips but if you were to squeeze it it would feel moist. When the plant begins to unfurl new leaves I again step up the watering.

    Mine is sending up another leave but nothing else is new, drops to around 8C in the greenhouse at night, keeping relatively moist, seems happy, lots of traps in the soil at least.
