    You can keep paradoxa wet while in dormancy. Done it numerous times with mine when they go "dormant". This is the only one I would advocate that for however.

    Slurm,

    For your tank it is probably easier/safer to use the heat cable like Pingman suggested or make a false bottom and drop a fully submersible aquarium heater into the reservoir you create that way. THe risk of a jar based setup is great because the water dries up faster than you realize...

    The temp is up to ~80 and I had to leave for work. I'll be tweaking it until things top out at about 90. I'll probably do some semblence of a false bottom, to keep the water from evaporating too quickly on that Petiolaris / B. liniflora setup.

    Does the paradoxa in this picture look as if it is going dormant?

    But now I see the outer leaves of that center going to the sides. Of course that also coincides with my recent change in their setup, which is essentially a warm water bath (false bottom and submercible heater). So... what should I now do... or not do?

    yes, Jim, it does.
