    How many people here live in San Diego, Ca. or anywhere south of LA and close to the coast? The reason I ask is, the climate here changes drastically in just a few miles. Someone who lives in El Cajon (only 10 miles inland from here) has very different growing conditions than I have here.
    It is time to put my VFT's and sarrs to bed for winter.
    For you guys who live close to the coast in Southern california, how do you guys do your dormancy?
    I was talking to a guy who lives in Poway who leaves his plants out all winter. Poway is about 10 to 15 miles inland and it gets frosty there. I live about 5 miles from the coast and it never freezes here.
    Daytime temps are in the low 60's to mid 70's, nighttime temps get down in the 40's. Humidity stays in the 60% to 90% range.
    I took my sarrs out of the tray 2 weeks ago and top water to keep moist. Same with the VFT's. I was thinking about putting them in a low light place until Feb.
    Should I leave them outside all winter or do I need to put them in the fridge?

    Perhaps your best bet to get information is to check out the LA Carnivorous Plant Society web pages

    40's at night sound perfect to me.
    Is that a Nepenthes in your pocket or you just happy to see me?

    So you think they'll be alright leaving them outside? I was thinking that unseasonally warm daytime temps might mess up their dormancy period. The daytime temps still get up to the mid 70's.
