    Hmm......I don't cut the leaves off Purpurea Purpurea mine are outside right now and frozen water in the pitchers at night! But they are very hardy so even with a short dormancy I think you can get away with it. But remeber to put them in dormancy next year! I don't have to force mine. But here is my prized one!

    As you can see a little there is ice on the moss.
