Ping won't produce carnivorous leaves

My laueana has been producing succulent leaves for about a year now. It suffered extreme damage due to a root mealie infestation, which may be the root of the problem. Anyway, mealies are gone, and it has good roots, but it still won't enter summer growth. I'm giving my plants an early spring under lights, 12 on 12 off at the moment. Has anyone had a ping that got stuck in winter growth? Anyone ever bring a stuck ping out of it?

Yeah we're in winter here. Makes it a bad time to try to troubleshoot a weird dormancy. I am only questioning because this plant has been dormant for nearly a year.

I've noticed that I could for P. calderoniae that were starting to go into winter mode back into summer mode by using a foliar fertilizer. It's always worth a shot.

Je suis à Miami, j'ai un peut de tout, Sarracenia, Nepenthes, Pinguicula, Utricularia etc. Apart ça j'ai des orchidées - tous qui survivent dehors sans que je les touches et quelques Paph et miniatures
J'ai pris un petit séjour pour visiter ma famille en France (Toulouse) et je viens de recevoir quelques plantes ici et je me demandais si t'avais de l'expérience avec P. immaculata par chance, j'ai l'impression que c'est plus commun en Europe qu'au E.U. et je n'y trouve pas beaucoup d'info sur ce plante minuscule

I wonder what temperatures it receives and how much light? I have the opposite problem where most of my pings decided not to go dormant at all this winter, even though some started to go dormant in late summer. I always figured mine are still in the carnivorous phase because temperatures are higher but it's only my first year growing them and it's hard to tell what exactly is the cause. Conversely, P. esseriana has not flowered for me because it doesn't think it's winter whereas one I grew from pullings and gave to Ben, who has much cooler conditions, has already flowered. The highs in my grow space are around 70, lows about 55-60, at 65% RH, and it gets 10 hours of light.

Edit: Excellent immaculata, Jeff :)

I came upon this forum rather late but wondered if you got things going again? I had a 'Sethos' x gypsicola that was a bit hesitant; even in early July in full south sun it was still in dormancy. A friend suggested I try watering it from above. I did that and it did the trick. Now I have it under lights (T5s, 6500K, 13 hrs winter and 17-18 hrs summer) and it is just now starting to produce summer growth. That said, I have a P. moranensis var. Mexicana that is just now going into winter growth, so there's often a bit of mystery with them. :)

For my ping I am always close enough to their condition 'in situ' and I rarely have problems.

A ping that goes into dormancy right now whereas ' in situ ' they grow, is a problem of culture for me :scratch:

So what would you guess the reason might be? Most of my Pings are waking up; a few still in winter growth (it's still a bit cool here), but two moranensis types grew through the winter despite being kept on the dry side, shorter daylength and temperatures between 12 and 18-19 C. Most have responded to longer daylength and increased water/temps, even the one that didn't break dormancy till July last year. :)
