It is a formidable asset in the fight against wasps, its operation will spare any pollinating insect since its flowers are very far from the traps.

Cultivation advice:

Demineralized water (rain, water from a dehumidifier / air conditioning, reverse osmosis etc.)
Lots of sunlight / LED or CFL light (color 6400 Kelvin)
Soil: 50% peat moss, 50% perlite.

Otherwise, if you want to control dormancy, you just have to place the plant in a cool place between -10 and 10 ° C and give it deionized water in a very limited way.

You must start to cause dormancy after 2 to 3 years of the plant’s life. This will allow him to take a rest and make bigger traps next spring!
