    Hi, I just bout a new sundew (dionaea muscipula) 2 days ago. It hasn't shown any signs or dormancy up till now. Does it actually need a dormancy period and if so do i have to force it to go into dormancy or let itgradually slow up on its own?

    Dionae muscipula ? That is a venus flytrap, DROSERA is a sundew [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/tounge.gif[/img] but if it is a VFT then yes it does need a dormancy(refer to VFT forum)

    Drosera alicaie is nice South African drosera that is pretty easy to grow. It can do well on the windowsill or terrarium. If grown properly, it will produce alot of smaller plants within a few months. good luck-Zach
