    Hmmmm, this discussion actually got me thinking...

    The common VFTs I have were on sale only recently in the beginning of October. They are still happily giving out a few new traps, although the rate has slowed down.

    What do you all think. Should I buffer them into dormancy on my window sill (quite cool there now as it's almost freezing outside) and then pop them in the fridge or should I skip dormancy this year?

    thanks

    Hehh... Clownette, My apologies, I am sure you are a fair and shining example of the female clown 'cultivar' of humanity.

    No need to apologize RamPuppy it was an honest mistake. And as far as that shining example thing goes well, I am doing my best to be. [img]http://www.**********.com/iBhtml/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    No RamPuppy, I picked them up in a store in Paris, they had just come in that day, so they haddn't had time to be harmed. They were in perfect shape, and looking quite vigourous.

    They had quite a few spring leaves (most are dead now, or will soon be), and they are bringing out autumn leaves now (about one every two weeks.)

    I really can't figure out whether the slowed growth is due to need for dormancy or just because my room temp is a bit cooler than ideal (i.e. to skip dormancy or not to skip, that is the question)...

    Well I personally would find out where the store got them from, get in touch with the grower and ask them if they already had a dormacy period and go from there. [img]http://www.**********.com/iBhtml/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    baring communication, i.e. you can't find the info out.. and it HAS slowed down, you might consider going ahead and adjusting it to your dormancy period...

    I say this because if the plant was tissue cultured, it's probably just gone through a massive growth phase any how... but then, as is becoming more often the case around here sometimes, I am pulling that out of my you know what.
