    Shorter photoperiod is a good start. From all what I have read and from my own growing experience I suggest you move your Sarrs to a cooler location as well.

    Shorter Photoperiod, cooler temps. And yes, i don't only have Nepenthes. I have S. Rubra, S. Purpurea, D. Capensis, D. Dichotoma, Two Venus's, on Darlingtonia Californica, and a BUTTERWORT.

    Just for the record (before someone else points it out... ahem Tamlin [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_l_32.gif[/img] ) The second name of the scientific name is never capitalized. IE... Sarracenia rubra, Drosera capensis ect ect.

    Here is the PFT article on dormancy. It should answer your questions
