    Just a standard rubbermaid tub from Wal-mart type thing with a lid. Mine's an opaque black one, but that's just because it was all I had on hand; I overwintered two others in a spare 10-gal aquarium with a zip-lock bag taped over the top.

    Outside, just Sars and flytraps, but I've now got all species of Sar except oreophillia (though the only one I have multiple sub-species of is purpurea). I'm just a hair north of KY actually; I'm in Cincinnati. I really do just stuff them all in a big storage tub and leave them out there, and they've done fine.

    Very interesting! So when winter comes, you just place the plants in a covered rubbermaid tub.

    Yes, i'm a Goji fan, too.

    Yeah, the aquarium's pretty sweet, but the climate in FL is much more to my tastes.

    Well, the rubbermaid came with a lid that snapped to it, and I just made a makeshift cover over the aquarium to keep the wind out. There was no light at all in the rubbermaid, and just shade in the aquarium, but I don't think that's as much of an issue of just keeping the wind off them.

    I'm pretty sure Cinci's a solid 6. And yeah, see through should be fine, as my pitchers in the glass terrarium did just as well as those in the tub. I just happened to have black heavy-duty tubs around for animal transport, and snagged one for the plants.
