I have a question. How come flytraps enter dormancy when it's usually really warm where they grow (Wilmington, NC)? This week the temperatures are 25, 22, 18, 22, 19 and 21 degrees with lows of 4-10. I'm having trouble making mine show signs of dormancy with temperatures of 12-16 degrees in the day and 1-10 at night.
Also, when they do actually become dormant, you get odd days with temperatures of 25 degrees or so in January. Why they don't they wake up thinking it's spring?
