My only choice for VFT dormancy is the refrigerator method. I've been decreasing the photoperiod for a couple of months now so that they're ready to be stashed them away once the Thanksgiving goodies vacate the fridge. (I've been taking them out again mid-to-late March.)
Now I've got 6 new C&M VFTs that have been thru plant hell for the last month or so. They're potted up and are receiving the same shortened "daylight" as the rest of my plants. They're obviously not going to be recovered in the next week or so when my other plants are due to be refrigerated.
So, I'm not at all sure what I should do about their dormancy. Should I let them recover for maybe 5 or 6 weeks and then refrigerate them for 3 months? Stick them in cold storage at the same time as everything else (ie. before they're recovered), figuring that they are already in dormancy? Skip dormancy for the year?
Anybody got any thoughts?
