That's good to hear. Mine responded initially when I changed it from 16 to 14. There were only three species that flowered though. Pirouette, Sumidero, and Emarginata. I had a cyclosecta that flowered but I believe that was humidity related because the more mature one in open air did/has not. The photoperiod on the flowering one was also 14 hours. The watering is different though so perhaps that could even be a factor, I honestly don't know. My current open air setup is 12 hours but I haven't seen any new changes yet. In fact, my gypsicola that recently woke up is putting in work right now still. I may drop it to 10 and I imagine that will send them into their "dormancy." I was debating whether I wanted to do that or not. Some in the grow space are immature and they just seem to grow more rapidly in their carnivorous state.
The factors involved in these different plants dormancy are interesting. I do think humidity is a factor for some. It was cool because I was able to pollinate a sumidero flower using the cyclosecta from the other space. Mainly wanted to attempt it and see if I could but I am looking forward to what comes from that.
