Hopefully some people here have experience with plants that go through a dormancy(Aponogeton, Nymphaea).

I have placed a two bulbs/tubers in the fridge a few weeks ago. I am very eager to take them out but I am afraid of the bulbs/tuber going into dormancy again only after a short time of growth.

Now to the Q: Does an increase in dormancy time mean an increase of time during its growing season?

No the growing season is only related to the temperature of the water in the aquarium you are growing them in.


Aquascape? I'm a crypt farmer.

It's a fine line between fishing and standing on the shore looking like an idiot.

That IS an aquascape, it's titled "The Vacant Lot".
