If there is sufficient of sunlight, no root rot, no bug attack, the plant might go under adaptation in the new growing condition and environment then. To me the plant looked fine, just unsure of what cause the darker colour on the lower part of the stem, if the stem/core if OK, then the plant should be fine.

For me, only all of below criteria is fullfill only consider into dormancy
1. trap closing speed is slow
2. new trap is far far smaller with previous
3. speed of producing new leaf is slow
4. all old leaf dried

If the plant is into Dormancy, then need to give it dry or cold dormancy. Depends on yours decision... There is few thread on how to do that.

Winterkid..... how should I address you? May I know your name, please.
Please leave your plant alone for a few weeks to decide on whether it go dormant or not, if your plant do go on environment adaptation, by forcing it to go dormant will probably force it to death. Don't be too worry about the plant, it should be fine. I personally find dry dormancy is the better way for VFT's dormancy in the tropic.

On top of that, please dont move yours plant here and there. The plant may confused which environment they suppose adapt to. End up, the plant may stress and not growing well.

Default Re: Dormancy

dry dormancy sounds good.but u need to have sometime for your VFTs since u must make sure the soil isnt wet or too moist.it must be just damp

for a beginner,i suggest u to do dry dormancy.but like me i dont have time to check all my vft since i got other plants to care for,so i fridge them.
