Subject: Premature dormancy?

I have several species of temperate Drosera (rotundifolia,
intermedia, filiformis) growing under lights in terraria (tray
method). They have finished flowering and now, especially the
intermedia, seem to be going into dormancy. They have stopped
growing and the intermedia have formed what appear to be tight
winter buds. As this is only early August and I have not decreased
the 16-hour photoperiod, can anyone tell me if this is unusual?
