    First I had to complain about the kids staying up this winter. So they took pity on me and formed winter rosettes, and I thought, OK, they should snooze now, right? Well, they should. But of course, my uncooperative babies instead put up flowers again. I have never seen this in all my growing experience. I keep explaining to them that Scottychaos is gonna be mad because they refuse to do the dormancy thing. I don't know why either. But, since they have VFT minds of their own, what can I do. I don't want to be a bad parent and destroy their creativity, but this could be confusing to some growers. Not that I blame them. It is making me wonder too. However, if you want to drop my VFT's a line, and encourage them to follow the rules, I will read them each and every one of them. LOL Have a good day.

    Peter, this is the first year I have ever seen this. I have had no dormancys in winter, to semi dormancys, to all out, full blown dormancy, but never have I ever had them go into winter rosette, and flower in winter, and continue to grow like Old Man Winter wasn't even there. Confusing? Yup! But, I have seen so many strange things with CP over these many years, that I accept it, even if I don't understand it.

    Kirk, You know that, I know that, but they are partying, and I can't stop them. If Scotty gets wind of this, he will probably yell at them, and there goes their self esteem. What to do! LOL!!!!!

    I've got some books you could read to them. How about War & Peace? They may not get through the whole thing, but they should be able to get through war. Or.... any William Faulkner novel, like Intruder in the Dust.
