    I just leave them on the windowsill in the winter then when they are done with gemmae put them back on lighting.

    Do your pygmies go through dormancy?

    It also seems that I might end up growing some too, not just my girlfriend... Pygmies are awesome

    Some species seem to go through a dormancy, others don't, and some even die after producing gemmae, but they still seem to fill the pots, and I have to give away lots of them every year.

    No, I'm not suffering from insanity! ... rather enjoying it, actually!

    I grow my pygmy dews in my south window during the winter and move them outside when the temps are above 40F. They love full sun and do well in the low humidity of Colorado.

    I've normally kept them at window sills but this year I am trying them outside for spring->fall, just as BCK has been doing.
