Hi, Does anyone know when these plants go dormant? Do they start to wake up in the cold? Or do the goto sleep in the cold?

Depends on where you're located (your profile doesn't give a hint!): Please define 'cold'.
Aroid.org tells:
Quote:
Dracunculus - 2 spp.
Dracunculus canariensis ?
Dracunculus vulgaris (Zone 5b St. Louis, MO, Springdale AR)-15F

But this is only true for outdoor plantation not for potted plants.
Also I would give them some protection.

AFAIK D.v. starts sprouting in spring.

greetings
Peter

Seems warm enough but I don't have any personal, positive experience.

Many plants which are used to a cold season, need a significant temperature drop to start a new growth period.

They do not wake up with cold but with warmer temperatures after a cold period. This difference in temperature tells them that its going to be spring... :wink:


Hope this helps.

Cheers,

As soon as the tuber grows roots I would pot it in slightly moist substrate. The substrate should be best mixed with perlite or sand to avoid rottenness. Start 'normal' watering when the leaf is full-grown.

Happy growing,

Well, now I searched a bit and found the following information about D. vulgaris:

It seems that this species starts growing in fall (autumn) and has its main growing period in spring. That might make sense as in the original habitat winters are mild and rainy whilst summers are (very) dry. In climate similar to the mediterranean origin it is very easy to grow in the garden the whole year round. In colder areas it also starts growing in fall / winter but should be kept indoor or overwintered at a cool place.

Looks like you did it right 8) - sorry there is (as always) very different information but this is what experienced people said. :oops:

Cheers,
