    Those plants aren't capensis. They look like D. spatulata or something similar. Either way, neither capensis nor spatulata go dormant - except for one form of spatulata that is unlikely you have been given. They do well on a window sill over the winter.

    Deffinetly not a capensis, has spectil been lying to you... LOL
    Looks like a D. Spat or some tropical species. My spats can handle close to freezing w/o damage. But I would bring them in before some more damage occurs.

    Capensis don't go dormant, they go dead. That is definitely not a capensis though. If i knew what if was i might be able to give some insight. By the way, i don't grow only Nepenthes. I have some Dews, Flytraps, Sarracenias, a Cobra lily, and a BUTTERWORT!

    Ahem....Drosera capensis will go dormant if the temps do get too cool. They simply die back to the roots and return in warmer weather during Spring.
