Ok, so i'm very new to carnivorous plants, I got a VFT 2 years ago and just this year started adding more to my collection. And just very recently started looking into acquiring more and research. At the moment I have a VFT, a D. capensis x spatulata( i think), a purple, and white top pitcher plant. Everything i'm reading about dormancy is about the temperature and the amount of light. I live in the Florida panhandle and while it gets cold enough to meet the requirements, our days are pretty much always pretty bright and semi long even in the dead of winter. its November and I still have new traps coming up on pretty much everything. I just wanted to know if maybe in December it may happen naturally? Or If I move them to my patio to cut the amount of direct sunlight they get down to half would work? Also water requirements im a little unsure about, ive read to stop tray watering during winter and also to keep doing it? I have also read that pitcher plants should be cut back towards the end of winter?
I know this is the VFT forum, but since i have a little of each i just went for this. Thank you for any advice you guys can give.
