    Temperate CP Dormancy

    Hi! I read threads and websites of what to do when you temperate cp's go into dormancy but they are so complicated(I am young, please don't blame me). Can you guys tell me what to do when my plants go into dormancy? Please tell me if I left any thing out

    I would guess Sarracenia and Darlingtonia.

    The winter in the Los Angeles area is probably cold enough for these, although the mountain population Darlingtonia may be unhappy long term.

    Just cut back on the watering. You don't need to keep them soaking as during the active growing seasons, but don't let them dry out. Trim off brown parts of leaves if you wish.

    I can't speak to darlingtonia, but sarras do just fine for me in LA.

    Update:

    They look dormant, but I'm not sure. Here are pics:

    Growth Points:















    Plants:














    I also have a few questions:

    Why is the vft having low lying traps near the point?

    Are my plants dormant yet?

    When willl they be dormant if not dormant yet?

    Does anyone else have this problem?

    Why isn't my S. flava producing phyllodia?

    Thanks and sorry for so many questions.

    That is definately winter buds on those Sarracenia. They are dormant. As the days become longer, you will see them suddenly put out new leaves again.

    They're all asleep.

    S. flava produces phyllodia in late summer and autumn by the way (or phyllodiform pitchers). The last phyllodia will have been grown some weeks ago.
