    In R&D..so yeah, I always have a good stockpile of Kodak film!

    I live in Rochester, NY..in a one-bedroom apartment.
    its far too harsh to keep my plants outdoors all winter, and I have nowhere indoors that would be cool enough..
    no cool basement, garage, unheated spare room, nothing like that..so the fridge is the only option.

    thanks everyone! glad you are enjoying this thread..
    I will keep posting new photos all year!

    Great job! I do essentially the same in SE PA and have learned some more tricks of the trade from your approach.

    Yes, cool thread to be sure, those "carnage" pics are pretty graphic, though, definitely scary for newbies like me [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_k_ani_32.gif[/img]

    Thanks for going to the trouble, and HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!

    PS I live due west of rochester and depending on what happens this spring, I may have some suggestions for possibly keeping a few things outside (and if what happens is the opposite of what I'm expecting, you didn't hear nothin' [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img])

    Two week update!
    two weeks have passed since the plants came out of the fridge..
    by now, I can tell that EVERY plant survived!
    even the Drosera binata, which always looks totally dead ever spring, it is pushing up leaves.
    17 individual Sarracenia pitchers are pushing skyward, and one is already open!
    too many VFTs to count are already opening..I stopped counting at 40.
    several VFT flower stalks have appeared, but I behead them as soon as they are 1/2" tall. (I never let my VFTs flower, did it with two several years ago to get seed, the plants died..dont feel the need to ever try it again)

    So things are coming along nicely!
    maybe only a month left until they can go outside..
    today's pictures:

    Very nice Scot! I'm in the process of repotting most of my VFTs and Sarracenia now, will be all done tomorrow. I've got more flower stalks than I know what to do with! Soon the greenhouse will smell wonderful!
