We investigate Riemannian (non-Kähler) Ricci flow solutions that develop finite-time Type-I singularities and present evidence in favor of a conjecture that parabolic rescalings at the singularities converge to singularity models that are shrinking Kähler– Ricci solitons. Specifically, the singularity model for these solutions is expected to be the “blowdown soliton” discovered in [13]. Our partial results support the conjecture that the blowdown soliton is stable under Ricci flow, as well as the conjectured stability of the subspace of Kähler metrics under Ricci flow.
