    Hi.

    Im new to fridge dormancy and I was wondering if I could just spray my plant with a fungicide then put it in a fridge wrapped in blck plastic at about 32 F. I wouldnt cut off the leaves or anything jst put the whole plant in the fridge. What do you think? [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/confused.gif[/img]

    That sounds like a legitimate variation of what some people do. A lot of people have mentioned spraying with fungicide and putting in baggies, into the fridge. But the prevailing opinion on temperature is more the 35-40 range.

    I have had 100 % success with just taking the plant as is, open tray, and putting it the fridge - no fungicide and no baggie, watering when necessary. Maybe I've been lucky, but it has worked for me.

    The typical refrigerator is usually held a few degrees above freezing, about 4C or so. I don't think the fridge dormancy thing would work well if the plants were kept at freezing temperature (but I've never tried).

    But does anyone recommend a type of fungicide that I should put on them. Like the brand name and stuff. Also could you
    give me info about other types of dormancys not including muclching or windowsill dormancy?
