    Question What can i grow outside?

    Hello, my first outdoor season growing carnivourous plants is approaching so since i cant afford a green house i went and bought a covered growrack. it is a 4 tier and it is the zipping open and closed kind.
    (it is very similiar to this)

    SO what im asking is what on my grow list can i bring outside and put in this rack. i defiantly will be growing the sarracenia, dionaea, and darlingtonia outside. But what drosera would be suitable for this. I live in zone 5. The hottest we get is around 95 and humidity is always high.

    also im looking to expand my drosera collection and im wondering what species would be suitable to be grown outdoors.

    hope any one can help

    Every sundew on your growlist except D. adelae - BUT if you keep it really humid and in a shaded location, you can probably grow that one outside too!

    But bring them in around Autumn.

    Personally, I just grow my D. adelae outside in the shade of my house. Does well every year as long as it is kept wet/moist.

    i have this gazebo thing on my deck that would probably be good for it. it will still get some light while getting good shade.

    I'm not sure I would recommend growing anything in a covered grow rack outside unless it is in shaded conditions or well ventilated. Indoors, sure. But outdoors with any significant amount of sunlight and you have yourself an easy bake oven with the sun as the lightbulb.

    I live in Zone 5 (Indiana). During the summer I have grown these tropical species outside without any special setup.

    Nepenthes ventricosa, miranda, ventrata. - Front porch with 3-4 hours of direct morning sun.
    D. binata - Full sun.
    D. indicia - Full sun due to misidentification, but it did OK and flowered.
