    Interesting dormancy trick Jimscott! Do you leave them in a closed cooler all winter in an unheated garage?
    How do you water them?
    Do tell!

    6 more inches of snow yesterday. High temp today of 35. I have a few sarracenia that look like they are starting to make buds, but that's it. We are supposed to have temps in the 60s by Friday, but I will believe it when I see it.

    The beauty of keeping them in a cooler for a few more weeks is that with the ebb and flow of fronts and overnight lows, I can shut the lid for the evening. Soon the overnight lows will no longer be an issue and I will move them to tubs.
