I really need some advice on this guy. It is seed grown from seed I got from the seed bank in 2020. All of its siblings and all of the other filiformis that I have are hunkered down in tight little hiberniculum. This wise guy is still throwing up new leaves. Do I treat it as a tropical and bring it inside under the lights or leave it outside and hope it goes dormant?

Yeah, it looks like that one has a good dose of Florida Red in the mix. I would flag it as "subtropical" and bring it indoors.
