    We had a good snow last night, there's about 3-4 inches on the ground. We need more though! How cold does it have to be before I have to bring my S. purpurea ssp. purpurea inside a garage before it gets damaged in its pot? I've had it in the garage since around Halloween, but I was wondering if it would have done ok in temps below 20 degrees F?

    seriously i wouldnt worry at all leave it there all winter. i left a rubra in a pot outside with all my others sarracenias exept this one was at the edge of my pond which froze solid all winter with usuall night temps of 15-20 and one down to like 5 or so. was completly unharmed and purpureas are even hardier yet. definately can take temps at 20 or lower you think in the wild a purp could experience to -20 or -30. these can take whatever cold you give it. was looking for a picture of it but cant find it of my rubra burried in ice and it rose in the spring with 15 flowers.

    Alright, I think I'll try that next year. I just wasn't sure on how cold container plants could get before they got damaged.

    container plants are usually not as hardy as in ground plants although if the plant can be frozen solid then it wont hurt it. usually the thing thats fragil when there frozen is the pot as plastic breaks easy when the soil is a block of ice.

    Heh, I went to check my dormant plants in the garage, and all of their pots were frozen solid, and the water in the purp's pitchers was also frozen solid, and interestingly enough, so is the live sphagnum.

    Are D. filiformis hibernacula supposed to be purple?

    Some of mine are a Dark green, to an almost blackish color, but are still firm, so I think that they're ok.

    What kinds do you have?
