I'm sure these forums are going to be filled with people like me asking if their VFTs are going dormant, and I just wanted to check if mine is dormant now!

Super dark red now, and some of the leaves are turning black. I know they're supposed to get really ugly and rough looking during dormancy, so just wanted to make sure they're good to go.

What's funny is that the younger plants next to this one are still really green. Guess they need more time before they go dormant as well?

Yep. Baby is getting sleepy. The way that you can tell is that although the bigger leaves are turning black, it is putting out lower, smaller leaves that are healthy.
