I just got a PM from a PFT member, asking how one can do the "fridge method" if you live in a really warm climate..
and living in the "great white north" as I do, I dont really have a good answer!
in the very warm climate, you can still use the "fridge method" for the actual dormancy itself, but how can you prepare the plant for dormancy if your "autumn" stays in the 70's to 90's?!
Here in the north, we dont have that problem..autumn takes care of getting the plant "ready" naturally..autumn temps fall gradually through the 60's, 50's, 40's..then at the right time, the plant can go into the fridge, and its already dormant just from being outside until mid-October..
but..what can you do if you live in a tropical, very warm environment where nature cant do that job for you?
any ideas from the southerners here?
