    My P. laueana never went dormant......although I've been keeping it wet year round, so perhaps that's why.....

    They do not need this but it is one way to grow them and this does appear to promote the Winter state of growth normal in the wild. At least some species can be grown wet all year around providing they are given good light levels and, probably, warmth.

    yeah that's why it never went dormant, the dry period is what initiates the dormancy
