    VFT seedling dormancy

    Hi My question is can I skip vft's dormancy for the first year after germination?
    I am trying to do this with a terrarium and heat pad. Will they survive better this way than putting them out in a glasshouse that will get near zero centigrade over winter?
    Thanks for putting up with another newby question.

    Yes, you can skip dormancy for seedlings the first year and they'll be fine. I had some in a terrarium all winter and they did well. I also let some go into dormancy with the rest of my plants. Obviously the ones in the terrarium that skipped dormancy are larger.
