Can't comment on the D. montanas but the petiolaris complex does their
most active growing when it is warm (to hot). If they have a dormancy it
would be during the winter. Mine just slow their growth in the winter
but I would not call it a true dormancy. Then again, they are growing
with lowland Nepenthes so it never gets too cold.
