    Do you know if these require dormancy?

    I don't think they require dormancy, but have not been growing them long enough to say that as fact. I think their habits are the same as typical "Florida Red". Some have produced hibernacula in my conditions and some don't, weird. Out of five small plants I left outside over winter, only two survived. The ones I kept in the unheated garage all survived winter with a few forming hibernacula and others kept growing but did slow down.

    I've been trying to grow this form from seeds received from the former ICPS seedbank manager, thinking I need to find a way to up the temps to get them to do anything though. As taken from him: this is a form that grows true from seeds, requires some sort of hot stratification to germinate, and though it probably doesn't need a dormancy it will rather readily form hibernacula (ironic since it's the one that has seeds needing heat to germinate).
    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.

    OMG those are amazing. I lost my filiformis and they are one of my favorite sundews. I would love to trade for some "white form" seeds in the future. I have a few interesting things to offer.

    Was it ever passed through an airport x-ray scanner?
