growing indoors

luvmybulbs(Z6 IL)February 18, 2012

This year I saved 1 pot of Tropicanna because I have a hard time overwintering this type. It is growing great, my question is should I continue to let it grow or let it go dormant now for a few weeks then replant outside.

Any help is much appreciated.

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

Cannas do not go completely dormant (even during winter storage) or require a dormancy period.
Cannas grown indoors over the winter will be very tender to the outside weather elements. They generally require careful "hardening off" before moving outside. If your pot needs dividing, this is an excellent time to repot and divide.
