Default Dwarf Cav about to bloom???

Looks like my daughters Dwarf Cav is about to bloom the trunk has a bulge that split a few leaves at the base.. @ what temp should I bring it in?? I'd kinda like to let it get cool enough it will slow down and maybe hold off the flower till spring... Or is it too late for that??
I'll get some pics up as soon as I can..

That is not a sign of blooming. It may be about to bloom, but that splitting is not related to whether it's going to bloom soon or not. The way to tell if a bloom is coming is by the size and age of the plant along with the presence of a "flag leaf", a shorter leaf which comes before the bunch.

Thought I had read some where that the bloom causes the base to buldge and as the bloom moves up so does the buldge.. I had thought this since we got this DC... Guess I was just lucky.. I predicted that the mother plant would flower with in 2-4 months from the buldge at the base of the plant and sure enough 2 1/2 mon later it sent out a flag and started to bloom..
Thanks for all the info!!!!
