    Hi S'poreans,

    Does anyone know where in S'pore can I find an extensive range of wine fridge at low prices?

    I may need one for dormancy of VFT or mayb growing highland neps.

    (other than Carrefour)

    Wah leow, that is a pretty expensive purchase! The Sunday Times yesterday carried an article about how to store wine. Looks like a cheap one might cost you $500 to $800! How about a mini fridge that is used to keep can drinks cold? Should be less than $100. Cindy might be able to share her experience with us here.

    I bought a mini fridge for $199. Samsung. Can store up to 25 cans.

    Cheaper buys would be garage sales.

    Hi Singaporeans,
    I recently taken one of my VFT out of dormancy from my kitchen fridge, and it survived!
    As such, I'm getting a fridge specially for my VFT dormancy. Anyone of you have a similar setup?
    Should i get a normal mini bar fridge with a freezer compartment or a wine cooler instead? Which one consumes less power?
    I will be storing some drinks in it as well.

    hey vistary do plants need light during dormancy?
    A lady went into a grocery store and looked into the turket section. She needed a bigger one for her family, so she asks the stock boy: \"Do these turkeys get any bigger?\"

    The stock boy replied: \"No ma'am, they're dead\"

    wezx: All VFTs, Sarras go dormant. Not all sundews.

    vistary: Try to keep the dormant plant at constant temperature i.e. try to keep it in a compartment away from the door. The opening & closing when you get your drinks changes the temperature to fluctuate quite a bit with a small fridge (bar fridge is not ideal, in my experience). A wine cooler is great 'cos you get to see if your plants are doing fine. I suggest looking out for garage sales 'cos when some expats leave, a wine cooler can be a real good buy. That is if you're not in a hurry...
