Breaking Dormancy

mattmega4(9)February 19, 2010

Which would typically break dormancy first or are they all roughly the same time

vft

drosera capensis

serracenia:

flava

minor

purpurea

and when abouts do CP's come out of dormancy (in california)

D. capensis is not a temperate plant.

A veteran grower in San Jose has many flower stalks that have been growing for a couple of weeks. If you are seeing no growth then you may have kept them too wet. These plants are not the easiest to care for. There are strict guide lines you have to follow. Cold and wet=rot.

well im not too worried about the sundew
long story..i thought id have a green house for it..didnt so just had to keep it out with my other plants so if it died then ill have to live with that

we've only had about 5 days of warm weather where i am in ca..on the purpurea..i saw some new growth..but nothing yet on the other pitcher plants or vft

the roots didnt look rotted when i repotted them last week (except for the sundew)

The vfts and sarrs rhizomes and roots look good. I see some new growth on them. What is your average temp right now?

They should be ok w/o the fungicide. Just keep an eye on them. It won't be long now before they start actively growing. Mine are still in the frige but looking good. About a month to go for me.
