I purchased a Den chrysotoxum, and it arrived on 01/07/2008. Once I received it, I refrained from watering it except for once, because I knew it could be a Den. that requires a winter rest.
Well, I eventually figured out that it does, and my resources say that it should be given a dry resting period in winter and spring and bright light conditions. During the growing season it requires copious watering.
I am just wondering when I should start to water it. At the end of spring, mid-spring, when?
I'm no expert on dends, but spring is almost here. I would start now. But I'm sure there are others that know a lot more than me, so come on folks help a fella out.
