To compare to VFTs, they should not skip their cold dormancy because it is unhealthy for them. Can a ping skip the production of their succulent leaves and remain health?

Treat them like cacti (No water, at all!) Until spring...
P.S Saw the rollicking you got from Ada on the CPUK forums. Ouch!
He's a decent guy though

When the plants have carnivorous leaves they need to be kept moist and enjoy high humidity although they do just fine at 20% RH. When they have succulent leaves the plants need less water. Keep the soil lightly damp. Some species can be totally dry if the air is very humid. Chances are your conditions are not humid enough so don't let the plants dry out.
