What temperature should my Venus flytrap be kept during dormancy?

The ideal temperature range at which to keep your Venus flytrap during its 3 or 4-month dormancy period is below 70 degrees Fahrenheit and above freezing (32 degrees Fahrenheit). So, the direct shortest answer is between 32 and 70 degrees Fahrenheit (0 to 13 degrees Celsius) for a night-time low and between 45 and 75 degrees Fahrenheit for a day-time high.

Now, what if your plant gets above 65°F, above 70°F, or even above 80°F? Will this trigger your plant to come out of dormancy prematurely? Not necessarily. Don’t worry too much about the daytime high temperatures as long as the plant doesn’t stay at that temperature for an extended period of time overnight (more than a few days).

In fact, the length of the photoperiod, the amount of time the plant is receiving light during the day, seems to be the driving factor as to when a Venus flytrap awakens from its winter sleep rather than the temperature.
