    My seller said he wouldn't worry about that, his plants (Drosera, Venus, nephs) never need dormancy at all.
    And he didn't really know about the intermedia forms. And didn't really care in particular.

    Dionaea and temperate Drosera (like most D. intermedia forms) absolutely require winter dormancy to survive long-term. You might be able to get away with skipping dormancy one year but after that the plants will decline. If the seller isn't providing that dormancy then he isn't growing the plants properly.

    This is true. Just pay close attention to your plant for the time being. I'm not sure how much day length varies in Indonesia but if it is enough you will notice your plant going in the start of dormancy as the days get shorter. Then you'll have to take measures to provide dormancy or have the plant die. For the future it would probably be best to only get plants you know to be tropical from that vendor or find a better vendor.

    We dont have shorter time/days. We do have longer suntime by 3-4 hours but never longer than that, and it only happen in Hot season.
    We only have hot - rain season, and this year, it was completelly messy. It should be hot season in Apr - Oct, but its still heavily raining now.
    I dont even know should I let my plant be rained or no. My seller said its ok to have rain, but I am worried. My plant was still smallish, and its already almost a month. Its dewy and producing new leaves tho....

    Well, I also don't know how to know if my D is a tropical/temperate one.

    Look up the fridge dormancy method. I've heard of a few people in tropical areas using it for dormancy. But I'm not sure if it'll work if your plants don't start their dormancy period on their own. I guess there isn't much to do if there aren't any triggers in your environment to start dormancy. You'll just have to wait and see. If it survives you have a tropical form and if it doesn't at least you'll know why.

    Today's pic. My plant and I struggles for 3 weeks, and finallllly, good things starts to happen.. More BLINGGGSSS....
    I remove the big fly, the leaf was burnt. Maybe its overload.
    So now I gave 2 mosquito larvaes.

    The very first time I fed my leaf, it took almost a day to fold. Today, it only take 2 hours to fold.
