They don't really go dormant like cold temps etc.. But their dormancy is different. They just go through a dry period, usually around this time or when the leaves get smaller.

it can last a long time. I've been waiting at least 4 months for my butterwort to come out of dormancy :/
Is your VFT experiencing these conditions?
