    D. spatulata is not temperate...its a tropical dew...or atleast sub-tropical...im not too wellrounded on the Drosera area...but i know spatulata definitely does not need a dormancy.

    rotundifolia on the other hand is temperate, i believe there are tropical forms however, or atleast definitely near tropical forms which require little to no dormancy.

    i think drosera xTokaiensis is different from the actual Drosera tokaiensis....the tokaiensis i grew never tried to go dormant at any time...it is native to Japan, and at one point was considered a ssp of spatulata, and it does look very very similar, even the flowers do....

    So if the drosera x tokaiensis is different, would that mean it needs dormancy or not? It looks almost identical to D. spatulata and is sending a flower stalk up as well.

    There is no difference between D. x tokaiensis and D. tokaiensis. The 'x' just denotes that it is a natural hybrid in accordance to horticultural nomenclature. It was given a latin name because it was originally thought to be a species or subspecies.

    By the way Ivan Snyder has a man-made D. tokaiensis which should be white-flowered. There are no natural white-flowered D. tokaiensis.

    So does it need dormancy then?
