    does it drop below 50 for the most part?

    Then youre set.. i would let other Florida growers fill you in, this is just what i know, light period needs to be changed i heard and they will go into dormancy even w/ out cold... Ill look some more up on this..

    Cheers

    Hey reg,

    I live near Tampa, Florida and I have no problem with any of my Sarracenia going into dormancy. Tampa consistently had temperatures of about 40F at night and 60F during the day all winter long. However, most of my plants go dormant in November way before temperatures reach 50F due to the reduction in sunlight hours. You must have cold blood to think the panhandle is warm during the winter. It turns out that part of Florida has a lot of wild growing Sarracenia than most parts of florida. You should have no problem with your plants going dormant. Hope this helps.

    Chris
