Hi Kirk,

I have very little experience with this plant outside of killing one
last year. Therefore, I can say it is *very* prone to rot if you keep it
damp and cold at the same time. Many amorphs have this tendency.

My current plants of this species are all seedlings, and they've put up
leaf after leaf after leaf and are still going strong in the greenhouse.
I really wish they'd go dormant! It's time to let my CT greenhouse go cold.

Here's my advice for yours: if it's had a good long growing season and
keeping it growing is inconvenient for you, stop watering and it will go
dormant. My friends on this list will yell at me if my advice is wrong
and then we'll both learn better...
