    I put my VFT's in hibernation on January 14. So so late. But I was afraid to do it without fungicide. My question is. When can I pull them out of it? I checked them the other day to see if they still had moisture. They are looking fine. But I am wondering if I am screwing up their cycle by putting them in and out late. Any ideas or revelations? I guess they need 3 months. Should I keep them in full term? I am dying to get them going. Thank you. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/rock.gif[/img]

    Na I do not think that would screw them up. Keep them in for 2 to 3 months and that should be good enough.

    Don't feel too bad. Due to certain constraints related to dorm living, I too had to put my plants down late (Jan. 18th for me). We just get to wait until Mid-March/Early April for our plants. Anyway, there's always next year [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    I put mine in mid-december, had a major accident regarding temp and reput them in about the time you did. I would wait 1-2 more weeks, a short light dormencey should be okay this one time, just don't wait too long or you will have issues getting them to go to sleep next fall.

    So, I COULD bring them out during spring break (march 13-21)? Or is that still too early?

    I had them ready by Thanksgiving. It's just I never got my Fungicide till late. They were putting out new leaves when I put them under. They went two months already in a low light dormacy already.That's what startled me. They were coming back to life. I was putting them out on the porch during the day and in the basement at night. They wanted to sleep. I will give them a couple more weeks. Then I'm pulling them out. Matter of fact. I'm giving them one more week. Thanks for the help.
