    It would seem that they start dormancy as daylight hours shorten. Autumn is when they decide to go to bed.

    A few years ago the larger pots ( 7" squares) were subjected to a long hard winter with the temperature nadir at -18C (0F).

    Tough plant

    Very interesting, mine has never gone into dormancy but of course my conditions differ.
    Regia still remains one of my favourite.

    This had me doing a double take today, a fork leaved Drosera regia. I t may be that D.regia and D. binata have been having an illicit relationship, after all who really knows what goes on when the lights go out

    In all probability it's a result of aphid damage but that's too boring so I prefer my first thoughts

    Since the leaf isn't otherwise deformed, I would think it's just a random growth abnormality rather than a result of pest damage. Looks great!

    I have a Drosera adelae that put out a few similar forked leaves.

    Good growing,
    Mike
