    Question Venus Flytraps in Zone 9

    Will venus flytraps be able to go dormant naturally in Zone 9 ? Please answer quickly. My plants are outside and I want ot see if I have to take drastic measures.

    The quick answer is yes. The average temps in your area are sufficient to promote dormancy.

    Same here, SoCal, zone 9. They go dormant very easily. Survive outside year round.
