What species do you have? I have S. sagittifolia, which can go dormant on occasion. I have grown this plant for four years, and there seems to be no pattern to its dormancy, which lasts a month or less. The plant does need high humidity, but also needs moving air, like orchids. Without the air movement, you will lose leaves and can get some rot, which can kill the tuber.


This species also likes to be kept in the shade, with only indirect light, which yields nice green leaves and lots of blooms. In brighter light the leaves become pale and sickly white or yellow.


I hope this helps,

hello all,

I have a Spathicarpa, does this genus go dormant?  I have it growing in a wet terrarium, at first I thought maybe it was too wet, but then it grew and flowered a few times.  Then it lost all its leaves, but the corm/tuber is still nice and hard and green and has lots of healthy white roots.  Any ideas why it would stop producing leaves?  Conditions in the tank have not changed.

Dear all,I have juust bought a Dracunculus vulgaris tuber, which I
believe to be hardy where I live in the UK. I just wondered whether
anybody had any experience with this and how to get the best out of it.
I'm excited to see how it will do.All the best,Anna

For reasons beyond my control, the webshots folks named the folder "Good
Times".  It may be true, but it sounds a bit teenish.  Perhaps that's
level of maturity.

Anyway, here are the only partially edited photos of today's set up. 
They're being loaded as I write this so if by chance this message is
published close after 11 PM EDT Friday, it's possible they won't all be

on line.
