    Likely won't come back, if they get too much cold too long

    as has been said elsewhere before, I do believe pot depth/size may be affecting them, too.
    I have a bunch in different pots, all from the same seeds and all sown at the same time in the same conditions and the ones in the big pots are 8" across whereas I have a bunch in a 4" pot and they are all maybe 3" across if that

    I doubt watering is inhibiting them, they seem to take whatever pretty well

    And for reference, I sowed all my current specimens last winter (january maybe february), and the big guys were HUGE by mid summer

    ok Thanks Mabudon. I will repot some in larger pots and hopefully get some size to some of them. I just thoguht it was strange because the ones in the minibog are the same size as the ones in the GH just thinker leaves from full sun, but size is the same, and they have PLENTY of room to grow roots. In fact the capilaris that are out in full sun and flowering have smaller leaves than the ones in the GH.

    They're a really excellent window sill plant. I was given a seedling in the spring of 2004 and by next summer it sent up its first flower stalk.

    Aside from pigmy sundews that are supposed to have a dry, hot summer thing, the sundews that I am aware of, requiring dormancy are: binata, filiformis, intermedia, rotundifolia, and I think - capillaris.

    binata doesnt requier a dormancy... like capensis it will come back from its roots if it has these cold conditions.

    D. binata does actually require a dormancy, it depends on the type. D. binata, or D. binata 'T-form' does need a dormancy. The others do not. D. binata will form a hibernaculum if exposed to temps under 50 degrees.

    Mine disappear from the surface and then greenery pops up in late winter. Call it what ya want, but it does die back to nothing for the winter. But capensis stays the same, 365.
