    Arrow Crash Course Guide for Petiolaris Dormancy...

    Over the months (because i havent been in the hobby for THAT long), I was asked by different individuals about my petiolaris drosera cultivation practices. Concerning petiolaris, the most mysterious and least understood area in their cultivation is their dormancy. I remember the first time learning about petiolaris drosera and dreading their inevitable dormancy because I saw that so many growers were unable to bring their plants out of dormancy and ended up killing them in the process because petiolaris dormancy was poorly understood. Some petiolaris growers commented how dormancy could be avoided by keeping the plants wet and hot, while others stated that dormancy seemed to come like a thief in the night, regardless of ideal conditions. I thought this graphic would be helpful for those who are growing petiolaris drosera for the first time and prepare them for the time when their plant decides to go dormant.

    The following guide is a culmination of my personal experience with petiolaris drosera and their dormancy requirements.

    Very nice effort, Jon; and I take back what I said about you -- well, most of it . . .

    Very well done!

    I'm still not growing something that needs to be 110 degrees though.

    This should be stickied!

    @bbella: derrrrr.......thanks.
    @dex: you'd be surprised how easy it is to reach those temps. a relatively small tank, sealed, with an aquarium heater, and direct contact with power compact fluorescents can reach that range with no problem.
    @mluk: yes. hahaha. you were partially responsible---but there were quite a few others dabbing with petiolaris as well. i hope this info helps you out in the future!
    @NaN: awww shucks. you think so? might have to spiff it up....a LOT.

    Not really, go back and look at some of the readers submission on growing Mexican Pinguicula and aquatic Utricularia.

    i'd love to see those, but i'll take your word on it.
    but let's say i might be willing to submit this piece. would i be able to submit it in this present format, or does it need to be reformatted?
