Breaking a long dormancy

temporal-joe(5-6)April 5, 2014

Last year in mid summer I was given a dormant Dracunculus corm. It is still dormant. I am wondering if a watering with gibberellic acid would help break it's dormancy.

Anybody have experience using gibberellic acid on dormant corms?

good question joe..i dont have experience with dracunculus..i have used gibb acid on other plants as a "hormone stimulant" with good results..
speaking as to some of the "tropical" amorphs.. i used to think i could force corms into periods of there vegetative stages..extending growth.. without success.:)
with my titanum,hewetti.. when they are good and ready to break dormancy..then they do..
good luck to ya !!!!!!!!!!!
