    They do fine in a fridge if just kept barely moist and exposed. Then they should be moved to a slightly warmer, more lit place, until the ovenight lows are forecasted to be consistently above freezing. Then they can be put outside, under a porch or a northern exposure until they are acclimated to being outside.

    Could they have gone from fridge to inside of a terrarium too quickly? This is my first winter using the fridge and I put them at the south window for a bit and then some went under lights, but no tanks involved. I didn't want to just toss them straight into bright warmth right away.

    Some are just starting to pitcher and one is flowering.

    It is a cool terrarium because it is covered with reptile screen cover just to keep my pet birds out.

    I had really hoped to have these for a show but didn't get the timing right. Didn't reallize how long it would take to bring these out of dormancy.

    Just replanted them in pure spaghum Moss

    I just pulled everything up. Out of 7 pots, 2 got thrown out. Rest were repotted into pure sphagnum moss from New Zealand.

    I'll start putting the lights over them about 6 hours a day tomorrow and work up to about 12.

    If I lose these, I'll just pick up some pots of those "tissue cultured" versions that everyone looks down on. If I wind up having to treat them as annuals anyway, it really doesn't matter.

    Yeah, my "Dana's Delight" hasn't started to produce new pitchers yet, but I know it's alive.

    I don't think there's anything wrong with tissue cultured plants within reason, like cultivars that have to be produced vegetatively. However I do disagree with 1 million plants produced from a single clone of a pure species. I'm a big advocate of seed grown plants whenever possible.

    Sometimes those readily available TC plants are the only way to get that CP fix that we all sometimes get. My only problem with them is that there aren't more species available-well, that and the conditions that they tend to be kept in.

    Are Danas slow to wake up in general? Mine is still in the garage and probably will be for a bit but it seems that many are saying that theirs are still snoozing.

    Mine were outside all year except when temps dropped below 20 overnight.
    My Catesbei has opened two pitchers and my leucos are showing flower buds.
    Purps aren't doing anything yet, but they are always slow.
    Almost everything else is starting to show new growth.

    Everything has it's own time. When it's ready, and conditions are right, it will wake up.

    Instead of the fridge, I would probably have kept them in the garage.

    If you have purps, they are hardy in your area. Keep them outside next time.
