    My D. "Lake Badgerup", though it had been kept wet, went into dormancy, or is heading into it, by the looks of it. I think the high temps we had for a few days may have triggered it, since I have mine outside, but I'm not sure. I'm hoping it'll come out of dormancy, not holding my breath though.

    I had 2 pots of D. scorpioides go dormant on me. They both looked horrible. I tossed the pot with the pink flower but kept the white flowered pot. Eventually, the plants that I kept, managed to come out of dormancy, after several month of being in a funk. Then they produced gemmae and I have second generation plants.

    Weird on the scorpioides problems. I grow mine indoors year round, inside temps. get to 90 sometimes, we've had a REALLY HOT summer so far here. My 8 month old scorpioides are doing fine under a T12 light with no air circulation. Sitting in a water tray kept about 1/4 - 1/2 inches deep.

    Drosera scorpiodes was one of the iffy pygmys I grew. Some seasons I'd get some plants that went dormant. If they did, they rarely returned. I think for most species the real goal should be to constantly maintain the water in the trays thereby preventing a major stress trigger.

    I have all those and they give me headaches! So does D. callistos and anything with allantostigma in it, as well as the lasiantha, echinoblastus....
