Dormancy....is it Necessary?
My DR-"ARROGANT"... went into dormancy around the end of September. It was growing outside, and when the cooler temperatures commenced, so did the dormancy period. The plant, now leafless and kept dry, was brought into the house and placed in a sunny window in my warm kitchen. I mist the plant and soil occasionally to prevent bone-dry conditions.
Now, new leaves are starting to sprout from the branch tips. I will take my cues from the plant and water more frequently as the leaves expand.
Is a dormancy period necessary for containerized DRs?
If yes, what is the MINIMUM length for a dormancy period?
Is the flowering response triggered by the dormancy period?
