    Many of mine have just recently started making the winter leaves and I don;t knwo if any have reverted back yet or not. I almost thought they were not going to put out the winter leaves untill it hit all of a sudden. I have a couple in flower that have been in flower too.

    Are they or aren't they --- dormant

    Alex,
    Well, it is only my opinion. Some people who also grow these same plants, do not agree with me. I respect their right to be wrong; I’d better, maybe my plants fail to exhibit true “dormancy” simply because of my different growing conditions.

    Though I have much respect and appreciation for Fernando Rivadavia and all the marvelous field work he is doing with CP, including Mexican Pinguicula I have trouble assimilating statements such as:

    In his, POSTCARD from Mexico N°9 ---
    In regard to Pinguicula cyclosecta, he said, “The hairy compact winter rosettes were a beautiful gray-green-blue color and the closed flower buds showed a dark blue venation over a white background, the spur overall bluish. A beautiful species even in dormancy!”

    Dormancy? Obviously this plant is growing. For goodness sake, its in the process of blooming. Why does he use the term, dormancy? Unless I missed something in botany or horticulture, growing, blooming plants aren't considered, dormant.
