Hello! I bought my Cobra Lily through a grower here as a seedling. It has grown super well and even grew a lot bigger than when I got it. Well, fall is officially here and temps are staying around the high 40s at night through mid 60s in the day. My VFTs have been growing outside, so I don't have to worry about acclimating them to get ready for dormancy. However, my Cobra Lily seedling had been growing indoors with a grow light, so my question is, can it go dormant with my VFTs or is it too young? I'm thinking it should be because it's wild counter parts no matter the age always go dormant. If it needs to, I can acclimate it to the outdoor weather so it can be ready for dormancy too.

Thanks for any advice! :)

I'm facing the same situation and I'm planning on putting mine out with the other plants.

Sorry it's been a while since I said anything. I'm going to try skipping it for this year since it won't affect them. Thanks!
