    I think im going to try that again this year..leave them in the basement stairwell until Mid-March or so, or until its warm enough that they can go outdoors in the balmy 40 degree air of March and April..

    I do the same..I leave mine in the basement untill march and then put them outside...I can't really take them out of dormancy earlier due to the fact that I don't have any more space under the growlights.
    Some days it just isn't worth chewing thru the restraints.

    I actually stumbled upon a wholesale greenhouse last winter, just looking for pots. I was asked what I needed them for and when I reluctantly said they were for carnivorous plants, the owner got excited and saw me as a vehicle to obtaining cobra lilys. Long story short, I introduced her to sundews and butterworts while she gave me pots and a place to keep the VFT's & Sarracenia for the winter. They are currently residing there, in a greenhouse that is maintained from 35-45 F for the winter.

    We had 5 below zero this morning when I got up! It's supposed to get to about 10 below tonight! So far about a total of 27-30 inches of snow. I am DONE with winter! Unfortunately, Mother Nature is not. Damn you North Atlantic Oscillation!
