    Yeaahhh, a week or so ago. In only one week though, it's 3/4 done pitchers (2 of em, one was a lil more than the other) developed, opened, caught fruit flies, misquitoes, and a yellowjacket. From tomorrow to Monday, 70 temps are common, the highest is 75F, which will probably actually be about 80 due to them being slightly colder in their ratings. They characterize Monday and through as only 60's and one 59F, but, they are probably wrong, this weekends temps should've been low 60's, but it went up 15 degrees! And they may even be wrong again and it be 20F more! You usually can't trust what they say for anything past about 3 or 4 days. It should be about 50F right now, but it's 60F, at about 10 PM, so, they definitely characterize things colder than they should be!

    P.S. If you think they shouldn't be outside due to root disturbance or something, it came in a pot.

    Do you listen to your radio, weather.com, TV or what?

    I grow my Sarrs outside year round. Granted I am in Atl but during winter we still get temps down to the 20s. Sarrs are robust, you should be fine

    It's a 10-day thing that tells me the temp for 10 days embedded in my computer.

    Thanks Pyro.

    Oh, because I use weather.com and it's always about 5-10 degrees off.
    Do you think you could put VFTs outside if it's going to get down to the low 50's next week?

    VFT's grow around Sarracenia, so my guess would be yes... but... I don't really know!

    I thought VFTs could go dormant as high as mid 50s.

    The temps in Charlotte & Wilmington NC in the native region of VFTs has been in the low 40s at night. The average lows for Wilmington, NC for April is 50F.
    Grand Hotel... always the same. People come, people go. Nothing ever happens.
