It's seeming more and more like I'll have to get rid of my plants real soon. But I really don't want to.
This summer, I got real bad chest pain, ended up going to the hospital, got 300 cc of pus drained from around my lungs, and the doctors had no idea what caused it. Possibly mold. They asked if I live on a farm or anything, and I said no, but I have plants in peat moss, and the infectious disease specialist said okay yeah it's probably peat then, since she couldn't figure anything out.
But it might also have been black mold from the basement bathroom in my house. But that mold has since been removed.
I used to have a plant grow rack in my (finished) basement, where I spent most of my days, and my nights as I got sicker. I neglected the one container that was growing some real funky stuff, and had a fan over it, so if my plants were really the cause of my sickness, I bet that was the cause.
Anyway, I'm underemployed and this is my parents' house I'm in, and my mother doesn't want me to have my plants inside anymore, except possibly on a small rack in the garage.
I could possibly have a place for my nepenthes, on a windowsill at my friend's apartment, for the winter. My understanding is that my sundews don't need dormancy, but could go dormant.
I've heard of people trimming the green off plants and putting them in fridges in bags. That would work for some of my bigger plants, possibly, but I have pots of seedlings, too.
I'm in western PA, so it stays below freezing consistently in winter.
I'm pretty sure my grow list in my signature is up-to-date. Here are some pics of my precious plants:
Thank you! Any questions, just ask.
