    Full sun, pure water... oh wait that's it... lol

    If you live in lithuania, and i'm only speculating that it gets too cold there, just mulch very well. Dig a hole and plop em in the ground then mulch if you're worried. Or put them in an attic or basement with a window. Or a fridge. The point is just whatever. They aren't tempermental or anything. VERY hardy plants.

    Luckily i'm fortunate enough to live in Georgia and mine grow at the edge of our lake If only I could combat the weeds.. oh the weeds!

    With VFT's, the leaves change from tall, long, thin, and upright, to shorter, wider, and laying on the soil. With many Sarracenias (not including the P. purpurea you have pictured), they develop leaves that don't have pitchers, called phyllodia. For P. purpurea, I haven't noticed anything other than cessation of leaves / pitchers.

    Would you happen to know what the daily averages temps are for December-> February? If they're not too cold, they could remain outside or at least remain outside with some mulching.

    Was that the mean temp or the average daily high? Was 10 C the average of the overnight low and the daytime high or the average daily high for the month?
