    And so? It's been documented that Dionaea will grow fine without dormancy for two or three years before declining. I think it was Cindy or one of our other members from Singapore that described how VFTs grow near the equator without dormancy. They grow rather vigoursly for 3 or 4 years, dividing many times and then die. The divisions repeat the cycle.

    Let's see how it looks in 2 or 3 years.

    But it does look nice

    i agree with yah.................wont think its anything special for a few more but i have had it for a lil over two years now and i got it in the fall so its prolly pushing 3 w/o dormancy though i cant confirm it.......it sits in the back of a tray, i haul it out to remove dead leaves and flower stalks like i did today and put it back.........waiting to see what it does in the future

    This is really encouraging. The search function yielded far too many posts that implied a person trying to grow VFTs indoors was deranged. I just got mine last week, but so far it is looking good just coming out of dormancy.

    What kind of lighting do you use?

    I also grow mine indoors...for now. It seems to be working. There are 4 VFTs under 2 CFLs.

    Once summer comes and I go back home, I'm putting them outside.

    Yeah, it's definitely doable. I have 4 T12 flourecents, so I am hoping that is enough being that I have it maybe 3 inches from the lights. When I received it it was just coming out of dormancy, but I have seen an explosion of growth the last few days.
