    One year seedlings have also a dormancy despite very small plantlets. It produces small hibernacula.

    Each winter temperate Pinguicula need a resting period.

    Why do you ask this ?

    Question

    Hi there,
    I have had seedlings from Pinguicula macroceras and Pinguicula grandiflora. I did not give them a dormancy cause my opninion is: these seedlings are to small to survive this. I cultivated them warm and most of them are about 1 inch this year. I think I will seperate them this winter ;-)

    Hopefully this is a little help

    Hi,

    if you might have more seedlings why not trying both?
    I tried firsttime to gave my seedlings a dormancy, but lost them (could have been a little to wet, maybe) , then I tried to keep them warm (under growlights in my heating room) and mostly all survive.

    But this is only my experience [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    Sincerly

    If your plant doesn't suffer of being without dormancy period, I would say go on.

    Here in France, I have no choice as winter can be cold so all temperate (and also 1 year plantlets) have a cold winter and form a hibernacula.

    In wild, it is the same as most temperate are moutains plants.

    What happen if you don't give a dormancy period to your venus flytrap ?
