Dont have much to share currently, but happy to see I havent forgotten everything about growing cps lol. My little impulse plants from colisanties are showing a big appreciation for more sun, clean water and actual food the way cps were meant to get it lol. Just need to pick up a fresh bale of peat to pot them up next size, they are still in their dinky starter pots.

What did you do? Back when we did fridge dormancy wed uproot them, the container would be damp pure LFS sprayed with no damp.

I potted and put in a clear container. Wrapped them in damp sphag. All my came out good. Just lost my flytraps.

I got a few flytraps after I read that article, I've never had success with giving fridge dormancy to VFTs, so I thought it was worth a try since they're (arguably) one of the more interesting CPs to grow. I think his arguments that feeding and soil are the two issues that cause die off in long term indoor cultivation make sense. I've often wondered why certain SE US carnivore species are fine without dormancy (ex. D. capillaris and the Pings) but Sarrs and VFTs seem to require them (this isn't to imply that I think they can all go without dormancy). The ones I have are doing well, although I'm growing them under less light (10,000 lux) than he recommends in the article. I'm also starting some Sarracenia rosea seeds, as both the ICPS and Barry Rice claim that species can be grown in terrariums year round with no dormancy. I'm a little more dubious on that one, but it's not like I haven't killed lots of plants before, so why stop now?

Anyways, would be interesting to see some other growers attempting to grow flytraps indoors year-round, perhaps starting a thread discussing our conditions and how our plants do could help clarify some of the guidelines from the ICPS Journal article.
