        I've got mine under growlights and they are only about 1-2 cm in
diameter as well with very curled leaves. They've produced flowers and
seed which germinated quickly once planted, so I assume everything I'm
doing must be right. I don't think they ever form winter resting buds,
most growers treat them as annuals, although they supposedly will survive
brief freezing.

Happy growing,
