    yeah how long was it in the bag? I mean, it could take a while for the plant to show signs of stress due to temperature and whatnot.

    Especially since petiolaris' have been known to go into dormancy by looking at them funny.

    Petiolaris complex goes dormant during the dry season (winter in northern Western Australia). Remember the seasons are "reversed" as you cross the equator

    From what I can make out the area where Drosera lanata is found looks like the mean day temps during the dry season is in the mid high 80'sF and the mean night temps are in the 50sF.

    During the summer (rainy season) the day temps look to be in the mid-high 90sF and night temps in the low 70sF.

    The advice I've been given on growing Petiolaris complex by pingman and others is to grow them as tropicals - high humidity warm temps (mid 70's to mid 90's F). I grow mine in a tank and the temps never drop below 72F.

    Refer to Pyro's thread How I Grow Petiolaris Complex and pingman's excellent photo essay Petiolaris group in Dormancy

    I may have tossed my ordensis and paradoxa too soon, judging by what Peter sadi about his falconeri. Trusting Petiolaris to come out of dormancy is like trusting your buddies to keep you from hitting the floor, as you fall backwards. Very scary!

    For the record, the new trap that didn't have dew when it opened up yesterday morning - had dew when I cam home from work.

    It'll come out when it comes out. There is no real set time frame. I have had plants that only go down for 1 month and others that will go down for 8 months. The best way to handle it is to watch it for new growth and once you see that start watering again and bump the temps higher.

    While dormant, though, do you cease watering altogether or do you just do it sparingly?
