Hello,
I put a mini-bog together back in January and it’s doing pretty well. However, when I was looking it over, I saw what looked like a sundew leaf floating on some moss. Upon further inspection after trimming the moss back, I noticed that it was a tiny fork leafed sundew. I did some research on the plant, and found out it had a dormancy. None of my other sundews have a dormancy, so I do not know anything about sundew dormancy. Could someone explain Drosera Binata dormancy?
Thanks!

What form of D. binata is this? The species is quite widespread so some forms go through a dormancy period (like binata 'T-form'). Most forms can be grown tropically (like 'Marston Dragon', multifida, etc). Regardless of form, binatas will come back from the roots if the top growth is killed by frost.

Then I would just grow it like a tropical plant (like D. capensis). It should grow fine.
