    Correction!!! They don't even go to the bathroom. Their kidneys and intestines and things like that shut down completely. I'm smart [/QUOTE]

    I am sooooooo glad I'm not a bear. I don't think I could hold it that long.LOL!!!

    Okay, back to the point. I guess it is a matter of opinion, and depending on where you live.

    Um, okay. I live in Michigan. We freeze solid here. My windowsill is probubly like 50-60 degreas farenhight. My basement is more like 30. I have no clue what that means in celcius(sp?). I can't exactly put my plants the the refrigerator.

    Then they should be about right in the cellar. That would be a nice deep dormancy. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]

    Darcie (and anyone else who's curious),
    Here is how you change celcius into fahrenheit:

    ((c/5)*9)+32=F

    So 10 degrees C:

    ((10/5)*9)+32:
    (2*9)+32
    18+32
    =50

    You can also go in the reverse direction

    ((F-32)/9)*5=C

    Cheers!

    I really can't compare tempratures here in England to yours in Michigan, but onver here I make sure the Sarras get as much light as they can get to promote the largest growth with all the dead pitchers removed to give the live pitcher bases and phyllodia a chance to photosythesize. The daytime temps in the greenhouses rises in bright sunshine to well over 10 C, but nightime could be a low as minus 10 C.

    I was wandering why you were using celcius... then I remebered that America is the only one (to my knoladge) that using the English measurements. Duh! In farenheit, what is ten and negetive ten celsius? My brain doesn't want to work while it's on it summer break.lol
