Venus flytraps evolved as temperate perennials. In order to continue propagating their species, they had to adapt to the cool winters of their natural habitat. Dormancy is a lot like hibernation in animals. They need to rest and store their energy for the growing season. If they didn’t go dormant, they would be extinct. You can skip it if you are okay with your Venus flytrap dying within 2-3 years.You can either keep your plants in their pots, or uproot them. If keeping them in pots, put the entire pot inside a plastic bag before putting it in the fridge. Thoroughly dust or spray the play with The Killer Plant Company's Dormancy Spray. Check the plant for mold and fungus every couple of weeks. Give more light dosages of fungicide if necessary. Keep them in the fridge for at least three months.
