    Hibernaculum question

    I was thinking about d. Capensis' ability to form a hibernaculum when it gets cold and I was wondering. Are there any sundews that form hibernaculum in times of draught? Besides tuberous dews.

    By the way, I've been on terraforums for three months and this is my 300th post. WHOOOHOOOOO

    Just kidding..... Or am I?

    As far as I know, there are none. I assume it's because a hibernaculum forms above surface and so would lose the water it is trying to retain during a drought. The closest you'll get to a hibernaculum during dry periods would be the Mexican Pinguicula that form their succulent leaves in tight buds during the dry winter.

    That's not so convincing an argument when I look at the hibernacula on my temperate Pinguicula or should I say I look at the hole where the hibernacula are buried below the surface.

    Looks like it. I did some (very) quick googling and it appears that it has an optional dry, summer dormancy. Thanks, corky.

    Pygmy drosera maybe worth a Google, many south African winter growers , they die back to the roots, not a hibernacula but require dry warm dormancy and wet cool growing

    I would like a terrarium full of tiny sundews, would it be appropriate to mix species? I wouldn't mind a terrarium with some capensis, spoon leaves and a few others.
