  Re: More on dormancy

Typhonium; I have grown T. giganteum outdoors for about 8 years and
it is absolutely ther last of the hardy aroids to emerge in late summer. It
is not unusual to wait until the end of July-even mid-August before the
first leaf emerges. It stays up right to frost.
On the other hand T. divericatum which is not hardy here goes
dormant about the same time and stay barely dormant in a cool greenhouse
until March or April and continues to grow and bloom off and on all summer.
I'd bet that in a warmer climate it would stay active all year long.
