Have any of the Heliamphora growers noticed their plants going through cycles of growth. Mine seem to go into periods of dying back similar to dormancy, then returning to more vigorous growth and producing divisions. There is no noticeable change in the environment which causes these cycles.  Any other growers observe this pattern ?

Cheers

My Helis started to flower during autumn when photoperiod was reduced.
During flowering time they don't build new pichers...

I didn't notice any other fluctuations....

Bt my experience with Heliamphora is limited

Seemed like mine slowed down new growth during the winter months. I figured it was due to the cool day temps and often overcast days. I wouldn't call it dying back period or some sort of dormancy. You mention your environment is steady which is very unlike mine, so not sure what to make of that.
