    Well a heavy freeze hit today freezing my sarracenia pots for the first time of the winter season. And inside the purpureas pitcher which contains almost to the top of water turned into a purpsicle. Lol







    Cps and frozen pond



    My mini bog frozen also with filiformis , a load off sarracenia flava and oreophila seedlings ( all those red ones probably 30 or more 1 year seedlins, theres ping vulgaris , drosera intermedia, rotundofolia, some others that planted themselves and what i believe is a drosera capensis in which comes back after our winter which i do believe capensis is rather root hardy i mean like frozen most of winter and returns from the ground. not sure though if it is and this picture doesnt really show it close up

    Wow! I must have really gotten cold up there!

    Down here in Tally it got like 30 degrees (which was really cold) and almost all of the leaves on my pings (that i left outside) shriveled up.

    P. vulgaris must be really cold hearty

    That's pretty cool. Also, it's cool how the D. capensis keeps coming back year after year despite the temps in winter.

    @ Farmer Dave, heh, P. vulgaris lives even farther up than I am, in Canada, so it'd have to be pretty tough.

    I just brought all my outdoor plants into my unheated garage tonight. My purps looked the same way.

    yep vulgaris is a tough hardy one and i think capensis is decently hardy. It comes back here in zone 7. My sarracenias stay out but are moved into a cold frame that allows them protection for when it gets really cold. It hit i think 25 degrees here in philly and its going down the same temp tonight again. my ponds freezing thicker.

    Heres a diagram

    Wow. With all the talk over in the nep forum about lid licking, purpsicles might be the next thing in the line of CP food items!

    Nice looking bog, by the way.

    Ya i was laughing so hard about the cp food items.

    ya my little bog is filling in nicely i just started like planting things here or here and assing more and more as i found different ones. Mostly were given to me. I got 2 packs of sarracenia flava and oreo from icps and scattered itr through it. just to fill it in and i bet next year ill be seperating them as there reallly clumped together. The filiformis are really established in there and been in there the longest spreading seeds and growing new ones near by. I can picture those flavas and oreophilas in like 5 years. lol

    Is that good for the inside to freeze like that? I'm sure mine has a couple times this year.
