    Unhappy

    I have three common v-traps. Two are very small and one is fairly large. I am trying to find out when I need to let them go dormant. They are in a terrarium with a cobra lilly, purple pitcher plant, drosera adelea & spathulata, nepenthese vintricosa, and a butterwort. If it helps I live in the mountains of North Carolina.

    I'd let nature do her thing, though you will probably need to take the VFTs and pitcherplants out to do their dormancy. The other plants don't need dormancy, though I won't swear to that for the butterwort.

    What kind of butterwort do you have? I have a grandiflora, and that's an Irish temperate and it needs quite a chilly dormancy... But others can range from mild to none really. Oh you might get a better response for your butterwort in the ping section

    Hmm well about your butterwort...
    How big is it? If it has little gemmae near the base then it is probably some sort of temperate (I think, because i read that temperates have gemmae), and temperates need dormancy. Or i guess you can just wait and see if the plant is going 'dormant'.
