    Oh, wow, I just realized 8F is -13.444C. That's a bit hard to get my head around.

    And I'm rather worried about my plants at home, now.

    They might be alright - I did something just as dumb - had my sars and VFTs in the basement, perfect hibernating conditions, then got impatient to play with them, so when we got a sunny day in CO I put them outside for the day. A couple days later I forgot about them, and it got near zero at night. I brought them all inside, and the VFTs look like toast, but the sars might be okay. I'm just leaving them for a few months until it warms up enough, then I'm going to repot and see if the bulbs are good or mushy. That'll teach me to mess with my plants in the winter...

    Since they were in a cooler in the trunk of the car, they were protected from the lowest temperature and probably stayed in the vicinity of the average temperature those days. That helps and my Sarrs might get nearly that cold. But mine are dormant at the time and, as I read your post, your plants weren't dormant before being frozen. That's a problem. I'm not surprised that the pitchers are toast, but maybe you'll get lucky and some rhizomes will have survived.
