    First I wait for a freeze. After one freeze I will bring in my pots into my unheated garage.

    When we get some rain instead of snow/ice I put the pots outside all day to get some rain. Then I empty their dishes and let them sit back inside the garage.

    I am like Clint. I leave them outside. I am using bugweeds method of growing in tubs and they are outside right now sitting in water. Everything finaly looks like they are going to sleep. Come spring I will clean them up and replant them into a nicer, larger bog. My tubs are starting to breakdown from the sun exposure.

    I terrarium-grow my plants indoors in my apartment. I start reducing the photoperiod around Oct and place them in terrariums I have on the floor of my kitchen pantry around Thanksgiving and have the photoperiod at 8 hrs/day by then.
    It gets pretty cold in that pantry but doesn't get near freezing.
    At the end of Feb/beginning of March I start increasing the photoperiod slowly and I take them outta the pantry once they start growing nicely.
    In the spring/summer/early fall they sit in my living room near my Low Land chamber getting nice & warm...
    Other than that, all I do is water them less in the winter and the most in the spring.

    One year I learned the importance of gradually increasing the photoperiod from spring to summer instead of increasing the photoperiod too quickly.

    This method works quite well for me for growing these plants indoors in terrariums year-round.
