    Nope, "never". I could elaborate but it's much easier to just say no. Unless you have about 3 species (which I'm sure you don't) then no...and those 3 species don't really go dormant...more like a slow phase, but not real "dormancy". But like I said you don't have them so ignore that lol

    They don't go dormant but they might slow down in growth and loose some of their pitchers
    due to cooler temps, lower light and less humidity.
    And I'll tell you, thats teriffic! And I'm going to do it again! Maybe I'll even do it three or four times! Why? Because I like it!

    the only Nepenthes having a "dormancy" are, i think, N. burbidgeae, sp Cambodia and sp Viking. burbidgeae has the habit of just like....stopping growth. for up to a year! and the other two have thick roots and rhizomes to survive dry spells.

    I wouldn't call that dormancy.

    Sp. Cambodia is one sexy plant. Lowland, AFAIK. I want one.

    hence why i put dormancy in quotes.

    sexy indeed. i wonder how it would do as a wondowsill plant. the seedlings have been blindingly fast growing!! as in...like the the seedlings looks like actually nepenthes and not some alien life form.
