    Do Aldrovanda go dormant?

    Yah, the only thing that I don't know about them is if they go dormant or not, and I can't seem to kind an answer. So then I realized what I should have done from the beginning; ask the experts!
    Thanx!

    Perhaps you didn't look hard enough...

    ... Aldrovanda is scattered all over the Old World, but these are the most commonly grown strains:

    Poland - Temperate, goes dormant
    Japan - Subtropical, I believe that if it is warm enough, it will not go dormant
    Botswana - Tropical, but will go dormant if it's cold enough
    Australia - Tropical, but will go dormant if it's cold enough

    European strains need to go dormant, African strains can but don't require it, same with Aldrovanda from Japan and Australia, as a general rule. All Aldrovanda can go dormant, but not all need it.
