As we all know, winter is coming. Many growers are now readying Sarracenia and VFTs for the cold,
however Im still not exactly sure what I have to do, as this is my first winter with CPs that need a dormancy.
Living in zone 5, winters are nightmarish and frigid. I have 2 sarrs (Catesbaei and purpurea)
along with 2 VFTs. From what Ive read, they should be dormant or very close to it around
thanksgiving and come out on valentines day. A few hours of light every day with no freezing. (Is this correct?)
I dont have a refrigerator I can place them in, but if that is my last option I will do it. I was discussing this with
other members and they said that it may be possible to set up a cold insulated Styrofoam box and overwinter them in a shed or something.
If anybody has any ideas or suggestions on this, it would be greatly appreciated.
