Nepenthes chaniana x veitchii dormancy

by Nick 81 » Mon Nov 21, 2016 9:44 am

Hi
Its getting to the time of year now when I need to put my venus fly traps in to dormancy.
Amongst my fly traps and albany pitchers I have a nepenthes chaniana x veitchii in the same large pot which looks fabulous in my opinion.
As far as i can gather the nepenthes does not require a dormancy period.
My question is this. Will the nepenthes tolerate the conditions of dormancy I will need for the othor plants?
I plan to put them in a south facing unheated room during Dec Jan and Feb in the UK.

Probably not

I have a chaniana x veitchii here growing in LL conditions and doing well.

If it will tolerate that kind of heat without any issues I would be very surprised to see it tolerate months of cold.

I would grow it in a warm window sill if it were me

Might have to remember pot it then. Would be a shame.

Out of interest Cory.
Do you think this room is speak of will be enough for dormancy of venus flytraps? I started this hobby in the summer.
Thanks
