    I've grown two pygmy sundews (scorps and pulchella) in a variety of conditions, including under lights with a seasonal light cycle, mild temps (but not much range) and outside in full sun with up to 100 degree weather. They seem to do fine in all conditions, although this year I'm experimenting and trying to find out if my scorps can handle most of our winters (may take them in when it freezes). I have not had any go dormant due to heat outside. I have found that they may go dormant if you don't provide enough water, but this applies under any temperature that ranges from 70 degrees and up.

    All my pygmies live in what I call my "Mediterranean" greenhouse; sits partly to one side of an east-facing window (mostly gets sun in summer only), gets cycled throughout the year from hot summer temps to very cool winter conditions and around 16+ hours of artificial lighting to probably 11-12 in winter; the plants have been growing in a peat/perlite mix, but as I get gemmae and take leaf pullings (successfully!) I'm transitioning them to a peat and sand mix, kept moist at all times.
    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.

    I only have scorpoides too. Grow it on a windowsill, gets a lot of sun, never too wet, keep it moist and it seems to do fine

    I grow mine outside in my backyard year round. They have been doing pretty well, even flowering a few times.
