    Unhappy

    I have a v-trap, purple pitcher plant, n-vintricosa, butterwort, sundew adalea and spathulana,(I don't think I spelled those right.) and a cobra-lilly. First: Which ones need to go dormant? Second: When do they need to go dormant?
    Third: Will they come out of dormancy on their own if they are in a terrerium next to a window? Fourth: If they don't go dormant what will happen? [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/confused.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/sad.gif[/img]

    Hey Wesley,
    Here are the ansewers to your questions:
    1) The VFT, Purple Pitcher Plant, and the Cobra Lily need to go into dormancy. (D. Adalae, D. Spathlata, and N. Ventricosa are all tropical plant and don't need dormany.)
    2) Set the plants out when Halloween arrives from their mother nature will take car of them. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img] If they are outsiide get. The whether will get colder and leaves the VFT, PPP, CL will eventually stop as they enter dormancy.
    3) If the plants are in a terrarium, they will not into dormancy especially set in tropical terrarium. ou need to bring the plant out and set them in to cool whether.
    4) If the plants are set in cool whether there's nothing to could go wrong unless it is still in a tropical terrarium.

    Hope this helps. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]

    Hi Wesley, I'm sorry I can't offer much in this dept. But maybe I can help a little...:
    Anyone who reads this forum: It seems that most of us "newbies" are assuming that the VFT's and other plants can just be suddenly popped into a fridge for dormancy (if they're being kept indoors in a terrarium). But from other inquiries I've been reading, this is a bad idea. To help Wesley out a bit more, maybe someone can help with specific instructions? Like if the plants need the temps. and lighting to be dropped gradually to keep the plants from going into shock?
    Besides, I'd be curious too! My new VFT's are coming soon, and I don't want them to die on me! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img]

    Same here, actually common below zero temp here is approx. 15 in winter. Sometimes in winters lately though frequently closer to below 30! Hopefully we'll get an answer soon... [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img]

    Actually, under general discussions there is a discussion going on about "my plan for dormancy". You may be able to get some answers there if you check it out. Seems like there may be some answers there!
