    Yes it looks dead, but roots should not be allowed to dry out.
    Also, the root should not be too wet to allow fungus and mold to attack.

    OK. Gotcha.

    How's-a-bout when to return it to the usual place inside the home? Mid-Feburary?

    With moderate dormancy you will still see some slow growth of small leaves from the center of the plant. Mostly what is dead and dying back are the older Summer leaves.

    As for your question. The plant will tell you. You will see increased growth in both speed and size of the leaves as the days lengthen and temperatures warm up.

    Hmmm. I probably should shorten the timer for the lighting. It's getting about 14 hours of 2 18" flourescent plant bulbs.

    A 10 hour photoperiod will do for now, lengthening it in late January to 12, in late Feb to 14, and 16 hours in March. The plant WILL tell you the rest.

    skpping dormacy by taking divisions?
    Doesnt work, my freind.
    Those divisions will be expecting dormacy aswell.
    No one here likes dormacy, but you skip it, you risk loosing your plants.
    Put them in dormacy.

    I think I have room on the lid to fit one more 18" light. Should I wait until Feburary to install it?

    Why wait? They love the light, so let them have it. Just use the right photoperiod.
