    Amazing Story of survival

    Last Tuesday, I went out of town for 5 days. I checked the 10 day extended forecast and starting last Tuesday the highs were going to be in the 60's and lows in the high 40's for the remainder of the forecast. So I decided to put all my plants outside before I left so they can get some much needed sunshine, rain and fresh air. I got back in town late last night and watched the weather. It said Friday night the low temp was 28 degrees.

    Most of the plants I put outside were nepenthes. I also put out my Caribbean loveleaf.
    I thought that was the the end almost all of my plants. This morning after I woke up
    and went outside to see how bad the damage was. Believe it or not, not one plant showed any sign of any damage.

    Yes Way. As a matter of fact, I read your post about the fire. I thought to myself how bad it was that happened and unforunately I wasn't the only one t lose all my plants. If I make cuttings, you'll be the first person they are offered to.

    I'm glad your plants survived. That would suck to lose them.

    A year and half ago I lost almost evey plant I had when I moved back to NC. All I have left is 4 neps. I bought a vft in the auction last year, so I have 1 vft too.
