Dormancy in Seedlings?

Recommended Posts

I have some seedlings that are only just shy of 5 months old.  Growth was huge and fast at first (some with 9-14 traps per plant!)  However, since it's become a bit colder outside near my window some of the traps have begun to die back, though, despite the fact that my heating sources have not altered.  Trap replacement is also either taking weeks or not happening at all...  

SO I ask my fellow CP enthusiasts:  Is it possible for even seedlings this young to "try" to go into dormancy by themselves, or is that only something I can assist them into doing once they're older?

Yes they can go dormant 'early'. Makes sense if a seed germinates late in the wild for whatever reason
