I like your underwater idea!
that would solve the fridge-fungus problem..
are they bare-root in water?
im wondering how it would work to bare-root all my plants and dump them in a giant bowl of water and put *that* in the fridge!
the bowl could be drained and refilled every few weeks..
of course, I dont care for bare-rooting every year because I think the plants do better if their roots are disturbed as little as possible..
but still, its a cool idea!

I'm certainly no expert botanist, but just looking at what happens outside, light and temperature are the biggest piece of the pie chart. I'm sure that there are pther factors, like precipitation, but every year, temps go up and they come down. Photoperiod increases and decreases. Having said that, temperature waffles its way in one direction or the other, while photoperiod is consistently in one direction or the other - and I don't think cloudy days or sunny days has a significant impact. Photoperiod and temperature work together, seemingly like a check and balance.
