Just ordered a small, seed-grown, 18 month old, C. bainesii, and it will be coming next week. It will be dormant. It measures about 1" across the base, and is about 4" tall.
I have two specimen-sized, C. juttae. They seem to be fairly easy to grow. These Cyphos. are now going dormant, and will be stored in a cooler location. Right now they are in my kitchen growing on a plant rack near glass doors that get full-sun throughout the the year. Temps. are in the mid 60s in this room. Can I leave the Cyphos. in these temps. or, do they need to be cooler?
Can C. bainesii be grown like C. juttae...or, do they need some special treatment? Are these fast growers? Will they benefit from extra root-run, in a large container full of quick-draining mix?
From what I have read about Cyphos.... they continue to photosynthesize through their green stems while dormant, so it would seem that they need sunlight year round. I would hate to store them in a cooler, and darker location if they need light. I could use some help with dormancy questions especially regarding light requirements...dark and cool, vs. light and cool.
