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.
