My flytrap seedlings seemed to have stopped growing altogether. I haven't seen new growth on any of them for the past 4-5 weeks.

They were sowed in mid October and are roughly the size of a dime. I am growing them in 100% sphagnum peat moss, in a pot which is 6 inches deep, under a lamp by an east facing window, so with plenty of light. I water them with water roughly around 39ppm, last I checked.

Could my seedlings have gone into a light dormancy, even inside with 65F temps? Here is the best picture I can get for now.

It may just be the picture, but it looks to me like there are new leaves forming? It looks slightly dry to me as well...

Lighting is important, let us know what you're doing. Have you considered feeding rehydrated bloodworms? I've had very good success with that in the past.

Dormancy in NC starts in November and ends early February.
It seems when the daylight hours drop below 11 per day, the plants slow way down.
And yes they are dormant because of being in a window but still getting the daylight hours.
They have slowed way down and busy building a bigger rhizome during dormancy
