I'm doing this with two VFT's I got from Lowe's in September (pics attached - they looked a lot worse when I got them, but they weren't terrible). I was going to let them go dormant outside with all my others - but I'm curious, so I'm thinking of over-wintering them with my seedlings and leaf pullings under the 125W fluorescent, very probably putting them outside in the Spring, and giving them dormancy next year.
Will be a learning experience, especially if they decline during the 2010 growing season.
I'm very curious about the odds of them putting up flower stalks over the winter.
Anyone have any input or personal insight on this experiment?
