They go dormant in the summer time, not long after they flower.
That depends on the species. Some of the Pygmies can be left in
the water tray all year long with no ill effects, while others
are a little more fastidious and will promptly die off if treated
in ths way. Theoretically they should be kept much drier during
the summer. The easiest way is to treat them like annuals and
produce new plants with gemmae each year.
