    Sundew Question

    I'm still pretty new to this CP thing, but I'm learning. I currently have a D. venusta and I am soon getting a D. capensis. I have read a lot about dormancy periods, but I heard that not all sundews need a dormancy period. Can anyone tell me if these two species need dormancy?

    I know for a fact that capensis does not have a dormacy period

    Maybe, I think venusta has a winter dormacy

    Welcome to TF! I didn't put my venusta through a dormancy, but I'm not sure if it is a requirement.

    it depends where you live. I think if its snowy or freezing in your area you can leave it outside during dormancy. D. capensis has a dormancy period, but im not sure about the venusta as I never had one.


    You will probably be better at growing CP's than you think. Trust me I never thought I could keep my flytrap alive, but in 2 months that thing went from dead leaf to BIG red leaves.
    I bet you're reading this huh?

    Neither of them require a dormancy. I have heard that D. capensis is pretty forgiving when it comes to cold temperatures, but I doubt D. venusta will be the same way.

    Err... you can't grow tropicals in freezing weather like Wisconsin during winter... where'd you get that?

    I think you messed up there.

    Hey WisconsinBen, I'm in Wisconsin too. I think other people have answered your questions but just so you know there is a few plants that survive our Arctic like winters .
