    hmmm... well, no I am not mad... as far as the other topic, I just ran out of things to say! Let's just leave it at that, and talk about CP's here!

    I was calling you lil bud (To kinda make you feel a a little better! [img]http://www.**********.com/iBhtml/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] )

    As far as which plant will do better?

    I am betting on the one in the fridge!

    Here is why:

    Dormancy is DEEP, so deep, photosynthesis is no longer required while in dormancy, and the plant get's a rest so deep it can't help but be refreshed.

    also, when it's brought out, it get's brand new soil, with high acidity, and the benefit of another years larning it's owner got...

    It has been sprayed with fungicide, reducing the amount of predation that might occur on from fungus, and will probably get a dip in super thrive to aid it in re-rooting.

    BTW, I think the little buggers are so cold, they won't even know they have been messed with in terms of un-potting...

    All speculation though!

    Hey Ram. Thanks for making me feel better! [img]http://www.**********.com/iBhtml/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] Well I think either way is fine as long as you know what you are doing in dormancy procedures and techniques.

    Is photosynthesis not required because of the low temperature? If I recall the minimum temperature for photosynthesis is 6 degrees C.

    I believe I read it in savage Garden, though I can't recall, that light is not required for plants put into dormancy in a refrigeration unit, because the dormancy is so deep, they either dont photosynthesize, or have no need to.

    Yes,Ram you are right. It says when VFT's or other CP's are given the "refridgerator treatment" they go into a very very deep sleep, ie: they no longer even need light to survive.
