I've seen several threads on here about whether a Flytrap needs dormancy every year, and for that matter what constitutes dormancy. *
In a previous post I made about "A Nice Pot Of Flytraps" *I showed a photo of some Flytraps I grew outdoors year around in La Mesa, California on a North Facing Balcony/Deck. *La Mesa is a suburb of San Diego about 8 miles inland from the coast. *During the winter Months The night time temperatures were typically Upper 40's to Low 50's and the days were upper 60's to low 70's, and it almost never frosted, maybe once in the 6 years I lived there. *I had this pot of Flytraps for 6 years in these conditions. *In the winter the plants would start producing much smaller and compact growth, but would never completely die back. *They always maintained these smaller leaves throught out the winter. *In Spring they would begin to flower (which I would cut off) and then produce large traps all summer. *This went on for 6 years with no ill effects on the plants. *The North Facing Balcony probably helped, because in the Winter the sun was in the Southern hemisphere and the plants would recieve only indirect light and cooler temperatures, and in the Summer the sun is in the Norther hemisphere and the plants would recieve direct sunlight for most of the day. *Here is a picture of these plants in their 5th or 6th year of these conditions, and I would think you would aggree they don't get much more vigorous or healthy than this.
By the way here is a picture of a S. Purpurea grown in these exact same conditions for that same time period.
