    Smile Question about Dormancy and Plant Division

    My VFT decided to split a couple months back and now the smaller VFT has traps that are about 1 cm in length.

    The large and small VFT are still living in the same pot (the one that it came in) and my question is: Does the smaller plant need to go through dormancy? Ideally, I would like to plant them in separate pots during march/april ...

    For dormancy I plant on putting the pot near a cold window since it worked out well last winter I know the large plant will do fine near a cold window but am afraid that it might kill off the smaller VFT.

    Any comments are appreciated! Thanks.

    Even tiny seedlings a couple of months old can survive a harsh dormancy.

    The new plant is no different from the mother plant and knows the exact time of year. It will need a dormancy.
