Yeah there shallow right there not even potted right now but I'll transplant them into something else when I have time. This was just a time/space saver. I'll probably transplant when they go dormant this winter

Good question mainly reducing the light it gets is a big cue to dormancy. Placing it out side in a dome while it gets cooler also works then basement floor till spring. Anyways this is the first year I've ever had to do dormancy so it's a learning experience.

Yeah I'm basically trying to learn as much as I can. I'm definitely going to grow some VFT soon and I live in a zone 5a area. I'm wondering if I can simply put the plant in my shed? Problem is it won't get any light then but if it's covered in snow either.
So maybe I will try that if I successfully grow my first VFT and then collect some seeds to try it. Or maybe someone who already tried it will tell me. 😋 We learn faster through other people's experiences!

If you search your question on this fourm you will also find out majority of your questions. As this topic of VFT dormancy is a hot topic for beginners. main reason why I haven't asked a lot of questions is thanks to this fourm and other forums with the aid of google and Facebook groups.

Yeah, I should be reading more threads. Just after I posted that last post I started reading another thread that covered that exact same topic. I think people like to care their own way for their own plant.
Also you need to consider the space that's available. Lot of people like to put their VFT in the basement. I don't have a basement. So I need to find another way.
By the way, it's just nice to see everyone's answer to the question.
