    Then I say give it a shot. Although, they will probably be just fine if left in dormancy for a while longer.

    Freezing nights are ok as long as the temps rise during the day and dont go lower then 20F for a few nights in a row. They really will be fine even if it freezes. If you want to 'be nice' you can start them under your lights and transplant them later in the spring when temps warm up more consistently.

    Oh yes, I do intend for them to go out once they've re-established themselves.

    IF they re-establish themselves,I should say. I think the Purple Pitcher Plant will definitely come back (it already has started, after all), but I'm not that sure about the others.

    I have a D. Filiformis var Tracyi under the growlights too, after it went from having about 5 nearly foot long leaves to dying back to 1/8th a rhyzome out there. It appears to be growing back now that it's under the lights.

    Squeeze the bulb. If it's firm, I'd keep it. If it's squishy and water comes out like a sponge, it's a goner.

    Little in between. It's already repotted so I can't pull it all the way out. It had a little give but didn't squish up. The center of it seems to be as hard as a rock.

    I had some problems with some Alatas I thought were dead. I pulled 'em out for repotting and had a similiar experience. I started breaking apart the rhyzomes, and most was brown, but I found some that was white and repotted that. Hopefully, those parts will be fine.

    Huh.

    Freezing at night, and 100.2 in the sun during the day.

    Methinks my plants aren't going to be too happy in this environment.
