    Isn't there a var. from hawaii that doesn't have a dormancy period? That might be an option for people in more tropical environments.

    If they have just gone into dormancy there should be a small bundle of green leaves in the centre where the grow point once was. My rotundifolia are very visible when they are dormant.

    The whole ball looks black with no tuft of visible green. I have to admit defeat due to lack of knowledge, I've "killed" the plant [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_h_32.gif[/img]

    I will try to select those tropical variety next time since there's no way I can mimic the winter over here. Otherwise I'll know roughly when to put them in the fridge for dormancy. It's all about trial and error now.

    I've just potted up some gemmae from john v.d. w and after reading through they're pygmies. In my weather does this mean I'll not get any gemmae from the plants? Or will putting them into the fridge do the trick?

    Thanks, Pauline.

    Don't be too hasty in throwing the pot out, you never know one or two may return from the roots.

    Good point. On several occasions, drosera that I thought were dead resurrected from the roots after several months. I would keep the pot if space permits.

    Ive got some D. rotundifolia that went dorment on there own and are now placed in the fridge, you can take leaf cuttings from it and place them in the pottin mix moisted at all times and they will grow new babies mine have. I have taken leaf cuttings even when the leafs are somewhat losing color as they were going dorment and placed them in the mix and i now have babies growing from them.
