    Yep. Maybe I don't have the patience, the time, or the memory to provide such a time intensive process, heh.

    Good addition. I meant to mention that as well.

    i wouldnt bother with it either
    seeds that come with it are probably about as useless as the dunlap "flytrap fiends" kit

    well..your winters are a touch too warm for an "ideal" winter dormancy..
    but few of us have ideal conditions..the plants can adapt, within reason.

    actually..I just googled average temps for LA,
    found this:
    http://www.laalmanac.com/weather/we88.htm

    those readings are actually quite good!
    yes, a touch warm, but if you dip into the 40's at night in January, your plants should go dormant quite well in the winter!

    You are one of the lucky ones among us..
    this is how I would grow VFTs and Sarracenia if I were you.

    Put them outside, in a sunny spot, (direct sun for several hours at least)
    leave them there...dont move them..ever...for many decades to come.

    Nature should take care of winter dormancy for you..im jealous!
    this is what I have to do in the winter:

    http://www.terraforums.com/forums/sh...ad.php?t=95809

    But I have 5 months of VERY cold winter, and 100 feet of snow every winter.
    Climatologically, im in Canada.

    I would put your plants outside..right now.
    leave them there..forever.
    dont worry about humidity..the plants will adapt.

    hopefully they might go semi-dormant for the rest of the winter..if they do, that would be a good thing..come spring, they should start pumping out new growth like crazy.

    I grow my VFTs outside in California, where the daytime humidity is LOOOOOOOW. Flytraps will do fine in most any humidity. Just give them lots of sun.

    Humidity is not a problem in the Los Angeles area. Relative Humidity rarely dips below 30%, usually only during the Santa Ana wind conditions. Those happen maybe 10-25 days out of the year. As long as you keep the trays filled with water there should be no problem.

    Joosa is growing his temperate CPs outdoors in the Lancaster/Palmdale desert.

    Here are the total precipitation(inches) Average and Average Max/Min Air temperatures and Relative Humidity for Glendale, CA (just up the road from Hollywood) since Feb 2006:
