    Hello guys! I was just wondering if my VFT "Dente" Was braking dormancy, or if it is still dormant. It is develloping new leaves, but I do not know if it is normal durring dormancy. Is it?

    The truth is that it has been motnhs since it produced its last leaves (November) So what do you think?

    Here is a picture:


    Thank you for your help!

    Tis the season for waking from dormancy... I would say that if you are seeing new growth that your plant is breaking dormancy and getting ready for another summer of bug chomping. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]

    My leaves grow year round, but they speed up when they are coming outa dormancy. The fact that you are getting leaves after months of not getting any means that it is definately coming out.

    Yeah, almost all my VFTs seem to be waking from dormancy. The leaves are definately longer.

    No. I grow all of my flytraps outdoors year round. Its been a very mild winter here in Northern Cali and recently it has been clear and unseasonally warm. I dont believe that is the reason my plants are breaking dormancy though. Typically my D. filiformis begins to break dormancy right at the start of February and the flytraps are always within a couple weeks of that. The Sarrs like to sleep in and stay up late... They wont wake up till sometime in March and then they will pitcher way into November, long after the other temperate plants have gone to sleep.
