	With regards to dormancy of A. titanum, we also have plants from Symon's
original seed collection.  We have never had any problem forcing them into
a standard dormancy pattern in fall.  By allowing them to remain outdoors
until temps reach around 35 degrees F., then bringing them indoors, they
will all go dormant within a couple of weeks.  After nearly 10 years of
this routine, we have had perfect success.  They usually re-emerge between
June and July. I hope this helps for those without a conservatory.
