    This is something I've been curious about as this past winter was unusually warm, and it didn't seem worth the risk to put my terrarium they reside in outside for it (since Vegas sun usually equals death to any CPs here). Because of this, none of my VFTs were put into dormancy, and they're looking pretty scraggily and sad right now.

    I'm tempted to let them ride until next winter, but I'm wondering if it would be worthwhile to force a dormancy with them via the fridge method.
    Some random words.

    You might as well let them keep going. We're half way through the year now. IMHO not giving dormancy is a really bad idea. They need it. Follow nature.
