    How awful that half your collection didn't make it! What made it seems to be looking good so far at least.

    This was my 1st yr giving a sarr purpurea and VFT a dormancy. I live in an apartment too, but luckily it is an older building and there is a space between the storm windows and glass window that stayed about the perfect temp. When they get bigger though, I am going to run into the same problem, no place that isn't either heated or too cold (darn NY winters.) Have you tried using any of the fridge methods with them?

    From 2005-2006 we lived in an apartment that had an attic. It drew some heat from the second floor apartment, enough to keep it from freezing but cold enough to keep the plant asleep. It was ideal. And then we had to move. This apartment complex didn't have an attic and I had to find a place that could accommodate the, So for the next two years a co-worker kept them in his garage. They did well there. But he couldn't do it this past winter and I had to scramble for another place. Another co-worker had an uninhabitable second floor apartment and I though that would work. Ultimately, it wasn't cold enough and it seemed to have been kept a little too dry. This past February, while calling around for more plastic pots, I stumbled upon a wholesale greenhouse and have a working symbiosis with the owner. I give her plants and she gives me pots. She also has a section that is kept barely above freezing for the winter and is willing to house mine.

    Nice Jim! I love going by my sarrs and hearing "Bzzzzzz". That's bug talk for "HELP ME!".

    Then I hear the plants going "Om Nom Nom Nom!"
