Do Cyrtanthus in the wild have a dormant period over winter? I have Cyrtanthus Venus, which I have kept dry. The pot is almost bone dry, yet the bulbs show little sign of going dormant. It is zone 9-10 here, so am wondering if Cyrtanthus go dormant in the wild. Also I have some year old seedlings of Cyrtanthus Brachyscyphus. Should they be allowed to carry on growing this first winter? That is if the Cyrtanthus do have a naturally dormant period. Ina Crossley where everything is settling in for our winter, wet and windy.
