    Some of my D.scorpidoes are going dormant, but the problem is that the pots have also two other Drosera species. The other two species are D.peltata....I think and another pgymy. Can the pot still be watered and yea I know I spelled the species name wrong, but I am at my friend's house, so I am typing as fast as I can.

    As far as I know, D scorpioides does not go dormant (mine never have in last 3 years).

    D. petalta is going to want a dry summer dormancy.

    That said, I have D. petalta growing in a pot of VFT that is regularly watered all summer long and its still growing.

    Doesyour peltata still go dormant, or does the moisture keep it from dormancy?
    All proofs inevitably lead to propositions that have no proof. All things are known because we want to believe in them.

    Last summer it went dormant and reappeared sometime back in February.

    The problem most people have with D. scorpioides being wet when it's dormant is mold killing them. I would cut back the watering as much as possible. Watering only enough to keep the soil moist. If you top water, do it at a point farthest from the scorpioides and avoid getting it near them as much as possible. Other than that there's not to much you can do. I wouldn't get too worried about it though as my plants have suffered 4 years of my abuse and are still doing well. That's not counting the pot I forgot to water for 5 weeks this last winter .
