The entire plant should be kept in a cold environment with a temperature range of 8 – 10 ° C (45 – 50 F). This period of dormancy is necessary for it’s growth, and although the plant may look like it could feed, do not allow it to. It is the temperature drop which is the most important factor in doramncy, so ensure that the new storage environment is sufficiently cold enough.

The soil should be kept slightly damp, however the pot should not be left to stand in excess water.
