    I live in Zone 5/6 and I grow mine in my garage in the winter near a window... like 3 hours of direct light at the most. They grow fine, I want to build a Bog in a wheel barrel with my sarr's and VFT's

    I like the wheel barrel idea. Let me know how that gows and better yet, post pics of it when you finish. It would be pretty fun being able to just wheel your plants around if you got tired of where they were. ... great idea...

    I agree with Wes, that is a good idea. It would also make it easier to move them into the garage for the winter or into a spot where they get more direct sun. Maybe convert a whiskey barrel into a wheel barrow planter.

    You could get one of those cheap plastic wheel barrels also. I don't remember how much they are, but it's not a lot. I don't think you'd need anything heavy duty just so long as it supports the weight of the water and moss.

    Wait until Wild Bill sees this and links to photos of his CT overwintering system. It seems capable of dealing with anything.

    I also grow Sarrs in CT but just keep them with their pots buried in the ground beneath a pile of leaves under a lean-to. There was some trouble this winter because it was so dry in late winter-early spring and a couple plants without good ground contact got parched. It's still touch-and-go for my little S. jonesii.
