I have a question about light requirements during VFT and Sarr winter dormancy. Winter temps in central AZ can get below freezing for several days at a time. I can keep them in a garage so they don't get killed, but the garage has no windows. Keeping them near a sunny window would mean they're seeing temps around 72 °F and that might force them out of dormancy prematurely.
Would a simple incandescent bulb be sufficient lighting during dormancy or should I invest in grow lights? If so. I welcome recommendations and advice.
