    Freezing Outdoors - HELP!

    Tonight for about 3 hours it will hit 32F. Do I need to bring my plants inside? Certainly not the temperates, correct? But what about the following...

    D. dichotoma 'giant'
    Mexican Pings
    D. adelae
    D. graminifolia
    D. ordensis
    D. Dee
    D. capensis

    Thanks!

    I would bring them in just to be on the safe side.

    D.capensis won't mind, but the others might. Certainly the adelae will not be happy.

    I brought the D. ordensis, D. dichotoma 'giant', and D. adelae inside. The others will have to tough it up! D. capensis should be fine, D. graminifolia is native to the USA and the Pings, well, I had them outside in similar weather when Winter was going into Spring so they should be fine.

    Drosera gramanifolia is South American and tropical, leave it out at your own risk. Zone 10 plant.

    Really? Well I guess you learn something new every day... I heard it was from the Southeast USA! Wow. Oh well, it's held up at around these temps in the past, it'll only be a bit colder.

    It makes a little sense to do some research on the species in your collection. Especially a widespread genus like Drosera that can be found on six continents from the equator through to the edge of sub-arctic areas.

    What the heck is Drosera Dee?
