    Dormancy or not?

    I recently received a sundew labeled "Drosera x tokaiensis (rotundifolia x spatulata)" and was wondering if this plant needs dormancy or not?

    Peter D'Amato says it does go dormant in the winter.

    Goes dormant when it's too hot, I think. Probably dormant.

    I believe we're talking about winter dormancy here.

    Well, with rotundifolia as one of the parents... you're looking at a winter-dormant plant. Or at least semi-winter dormant.

    it is probably one of those plants that will go dormant if it can, but does not NEED it....like a few other temperate x tropical hybrids...

    i believe the rotund used in this hybrid was a plant from farther south in cali, that already had a weak dormancy time as it was...

    IDK, they're both temperate species I think. I'd "fridge" it.

    Spatulata doesn't actually go dormant.
