Re: [Aroid-l] Helicodiceros muscivorus

Hi Peter,  I'm not sure you can fool mother nature!!!  Since they are winter growing I'd personally recommned growing them in a cool place like a basement under grow lights in the absence of a cold greenhouse of cold frame.  I have done this for 3 years now with a reasonable level of success.  I've got several that have just emerged from dormancy or are just gettng going now along with my Dracunculus canariensis and an Arum or two.  Until we have some significant freezes I let them stay outside and once it gets too cold I'll put them under the grow lights.  Hopefully other northern growers without the benefit of a GH will be able to comment further.
Best of luck,

Subject: [Aroid-l] Helicodiceros muscivorus

During summer I got finally some bulbs.
I tried to fool them and placed the bulbs in the refrigerator, to force them to stay dormant during winter and get green in spring.
Today I checked the bulbs and one (out of four) is already thriving.

Now the big question is what to do. The winter is far below 0C here in Vienna, the fall around 0C. That seems to cold for old musci.
Shall I put the pots indoor with insufficient light or shall I leave them in the fridge. It still seems to me the best to leave them where they are.
