DORMANCY of my PLANTS   


 The plants originates form various climates, and that have to be taken in consideration when the right time and environment for the plant's dormancy is chosen. In general, I guess the best way to store the dormant plants would be around 12-15 Celsius and a humidity around 60-70%.

 Most of the plants don't need a dormant period, they just forced in to it in the wild, and will survive it in captivity, unless they are too small. If you got the room for it; Let them grow, but still; Careful with the water when they not are in growth. Generally: When in doubt: Don't water! See also the   Water, Sun and Temperature Table  . I stopped updating this page 15/5 09, due to the fact it has gone too large to be useful. I will write on each plant's page, if it is a winter grower.

Not dormant, but some care with the water:
