    Varies by species, too. I let them do what they want without too much prodding. I feed when they seem to want to grow, and I withhold when they don't.
    Very good summary, Kevin! Thanks.

    You'd think with completely artificial lighting and temperature control they wouldn't have any seasonal patterns.
    Come to me flies and crawling bugs. This plant wants to give you great big hugs
    Aren't I pretty, don't I smell good? I'd come to you if I could
    But I can't so you must come to me, I'm sure we will get along splendidly

    If all you have is completely artificial conditions with consistent year-round light + heating, then you won't observe a significant seasonal slowdown. However, most people have a situation where natural lighting is part of the equation, and with some degree of seasonal temperature changes. Those growers will see some changes in plant performance through the change of seasons.

    It is pitchers like these which catch birds and rodents.
