I've had my vft seedlings out in the garage on an 8hr photoperiod since late october/early november. Can i take them out of dormancy without them dying during the growing year, im worried about one of the seedlings

General rule of thumb for dormancy is: Halloween to Valentine's Day. Since I live in a colder climate, my VFTs' dormancy will go more until mid-March probably.

I think I read Matt once saying that 3-5 months is the standard for dormancy. I'm not 100% though...

Thanks, i looked at the dormancy page on the main website and it says 3-5 months for a fridge dormancy. So i might take the seedlings out of dormancy just to make sure they make it through.
