    When should I expect my Drosera binata to flower? Or did I already miss that?

    Most of everything that I have fowers as it comes out of dormancy. In Early Spring.
    If you think about it...all plants usually flower in spring or fall when temps. are a bit cooler. Nothing really in Winter or Summer.

    [img]http://www.**********.com/iBhtml/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] Binata is a tropical I think, it doesn't have dormancy does it?

    I think Binata is supposed to flower when it's old enough and happy enough... but I am not an expert on this plant... so hopefully some one who is will correct me!

    D. Binata is not tropical-it's actually temperate-i'm not to sure weather or not it requires dormancy, but being found in australian temperate climates i dare say it does-just stick it in the fridge pot and all for 6-8 weeks and then take it out-dormancy isn't really required but there is no harm in giving it a light dormancy period. Don't worry about taking this plant out of the soil and putting it in a plastic bag because binata is so hardy i doubt keeping it in the pot will harm it as long as you thoroughly spray it with fungicide first.

    Thanks for clearing it up Mondo! I have to say having some australians on the board does come in handy from time to time! (Yer special forces aint to shabby either! Thanks for them too!)

    Any how, so a light dormancy is ok, but not a must? That is good to know.. my Binata is still very young, should I give it a dormancy period?

    I'm a little confused too. I was 100% sure that there was no dormancy for d.binata, and I went to look up some links to prove Mondo wrong (plastic.com style), but I was wrong. I was so sure tho! Oh well, I guess everyone makes mistakes.

    Hi guys

    Another 2 cents worth (these're Australian cents so I guess it's only a cent to you guys, and gals, in the US). I have a binata that is flowering right now. I also have about 20 others that are not. They are growing here in tropical conditions and have come from Singapore where I assume they never did get any dormancy either.

    Binata comes in quite a few different flavours, mine are all either mulitfida or multifida extrema. I believe that the vanilla flavoured ones, your standard 2 fork binata, comes from southern NSW and around there. Thye would require a short dormancy. The more forked ones such as I have are from QLD and therefore don't need any winter.

    Trashcan is your binata a multifida or a regular vanilla one?
    Why has mine flowered?
    It has just been repotted, but so have all of them. Sometimes stressing plants causes them to flower and that's why I think mine is now. Other than that I suspect Ram is closest to the truth, if they're happy ....

    Cheers, fatboy.
