It arrived dormant, which is fine. I planted it outside in a pot with other VFT's that are going dormant and marked it so I would remember which was which since they're all ugly in the Spring.
I resisted the temptation of taking leaf pullings of a dormant B52 and putting them under my fluorescent light. I'd probably kill the thing and get no sprouts.
I'd post pics but it's really not much to look at right now. Just an update.
