  Re: [Aroid-l] Gonatopus angustus

Hi E.,

I had heard that Gonatopus angustus don't have a well-defined dormancy and can stay in leaf year-round.=A0 My own personal experience with growing them in the northeast US is that they tend to go dormant sometime during the winter and break dormancy in earlyish spring.

It seems to be a sturdy plant and I've never lost one during dormancy to rot or dessication.=A0 I have always kept them in their pots just like I do my Gon. boivinii.=A0

My boivinii also seem to have a poorly defined dormancy.=A0 One of them has been in leaf for well over a year while another one was dormant all winter (the solid green form).=A0 When I say "in leaf" with boivinii I mean an unbroken series of leaves and inflorescences.

I bought a
Gonatopus angustus earlier this year and its been dormant this whole time. Im wondering if anyone has any cultivation info? What should I do with this plant when the heather turns cold? How long will it grow before going dormant again? Basically everything I need to know about it. Thank you
