    Forked sundew help?



    Hi, so I was wondering if anyone could help me with weather or not my forked sundew needs dormancy or not. I've been told that it does by some people, yet others say it does not need it.
    Please help me before it dies...

    Most of them do. What species is this? I know all of mine went dormant recently.

    Even if it's a form that needs dormancy I highly doubt it'll die from skipping one... D. binata is tough as nails.

    Many of them will grow year round, but if given the right seasonal clues they'll fall asleep for you as well. Cool weather, shorter light exposure, and they'll die back. Even multifida extrema can survive over winter if sheltered, though it might not go "dormant" per se.
    Everything has a reason, whether big or small. Never underestimate the power of what is or is not.
    There is far more to everything than meets the eye.

    OkAy. Someone told me to put it in a ziplock bag with pine needles for its dormancy set up.

    A plastic bag isn't necessary, just sink the pot into the ground and mulch it heavily. Sealing the pot off completely can cause issues with rot and stagnation.
