In short, I get through dormancy just fine.... it's putting them outside, open to the critters, that does them in. I lost all my VFT's, most of the sundews, and half of the Sarracenias after dormancy, outside.

    You're right Jim, I did get the idea from you! My attic got below freezing many times over the winter, I had a digital thermometer up there feeding me temp. data.

    Maybe try elevating the plants up on tables or some other platform. I got woodchucks and so far they don't bother my Sarrs even though I have them elevated about 2 feet.
