How long will it take my dragonwing to come back from dormancy?

Bumblebeez SC Zone 7March 22, 2010

I just got out my large dragon wing from the garage. It is still in its big nursery pot ( maybe 2-3 gallon) from last year.

It has no leaves but several thick green canes.

I have thoroughly watered it and will leave it inside before gradually moving it out for the summer. It was not watered all winter.

How long do you think it will take for it to be covered in leaves and start blooming?

Should I repot it now with fresh soil? Start to give it some miracle grow?

Oh my. Do Dragon Wings go into Dormacy? I've had mine in the house blooming all Winter (leaving their flowers all over the place!UGH!).

I've found they're pretty tough. I hope it comes back for you.

I would not repot it now, as it is already in shock, and repotting will add more stress. Keep watering it and add a light dose of fertilizer every now and then. Let it get some light. If you see fresh shoot tips coming out of the canes you are in luck. You might want to take a stem cutting from one of the green canes in case it does not want to come back to life.
Good luck.
