Subject: Dormany advice for Dionaea and Sarracenia

Hi all

Any British cp growers out there? If so, I was wondering what you are doing
about dormancy for my windowsill Dionaea and Sarracenia species. Any advice
would be useful (The Savage Garden has been reasonably helpful) such as when
to commence dormancy, how long it should go on for, and what, if anything,
should be done to the plants for it.
For instance, I have noticed the sickle shaped leaves replacing the main
pitchers, the latter of which are becoming mostly discoloured and brown at
the top. Do these need removing?

Many thanks
