    When I moved my vfts (R.dragon, green dragon, 2common) outside earlier this summer I took the tops off.
    My dente had already had its top off when I moved it out and it is doing great and even been catching its own bugs. it's traps are about 1/2 inch.
    My commons have rebounded and doing great. They each have about 7 or 8 traps. Each trap is about 1/8 inches and even catching small gnats.
    The red dragon has not rebounded very quikly though. The red dragon had about 5-7 traps/leaves before I removed the top. It now has 3, and only one of which still works. I fed it a fly and now it has a few new leaves coming out. Its traps are about 5/8 inch. I hope it has rebounded enough be the end of the growing season to survive dormancy.

    My green dragon has also rebounded, and doing quite well; it has also caught a couple of bugs plus the fly I fed it. It has about 5 or six leaves, four of which are in working order.
    Does anyone have any advice on preparing them for dormancy?

    Where do you live? You can probably leave them outside until the first frost (if you get one), and then bring them in and put them either in the fridge, or in a cool, damp room.

    Hope this helps,

    Wesley,
    It is way too early to worry about dormancy yet. You won't need to do anything until around late November. I'd wait till then to make a dicision on whether they can go through a dormancy or not. A lot can happen between now & then.

    Last November there was a dormancy thread that was pinned in General Discussions (I think) and I think they will bring it back again this fall. It covered questions on many types of CPs, including different methods, fungicide use, etc.

    Okay, thanks. Oh... and I live in the northwestern part of North Carolina, where it often gets below freezing during the winter.
