I live in South Florida and will be putting my troops (purchased from Exotic Gardens May of this year) in the refrigerator to rest. Other than a slightly lower growth rate my VFTs are healthy and robust…especially my Dentes which have stunning interior red traps and are still eating every insect in sight. The typicals are still producing new growth.
I have three questions that were not completely addressed in the dormancy post.
-Will forcing them into dormancy lessen their chance of survival?
-Does anyone have any advice as to which method is best…”bare root” or “in the pot”?
-In either case…should I cut back ALL of the existing leaves/traps?
