Default How many months till fruit?

How many months does a Dwarf Orinoco take from pup to fruiting usually? I took 4 pups off of the mother plant, and they are growing indoors. One is about 2 feet tall right now. The mother has about 6 feet of stem and is in the greenhouse in a semi dormant state.

How long did it take to get the D. Orinoco to 6' of stem? + 6 months.. :^)

How much it fruits will hinge on strength of the plant, light, temp, and how well your feeding it.. did I miss anything? :^)

In your conditions:
The mother plant - I'll guess 1 to 3 years.
The 2' pup - I'll guess 3 to 5 years.

You might be able to get it to fruit sooner if you have a big enough pot and put the plant outside during the spring/summer.
