    Sounds like I can quit dragging my VFTs in at night when the temps drop below 20°F [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img] .[/QUOTE]
    ummmm, freezing isn't good for VFT's but they can survive it.... sometimes.

    Question

    Imduff makes a good point. I forgot to cover my flytraps the night of the 4th and my two flytraps in the little 3" pots got froze hard and I may lose one or both. The 5 plants in the large window planter didn't seem to notice the freeze.

    Steve, I don't think it would bother them. I had my only 2 flytraps out on my proch, well actually my entire Sarracenia collection is out there on my porch, and we got a freeze here a while ago of about -20F everything was froze SOLID. I mean a hammer couldn't break it......all pots thawed and vft's are growing like they should be during dormancy (the slow pace).

    Yup Cole, the Canadian cold air mass hit us a week ago and it really chilled things down. 5 as a low? that's hot weather compared to -20! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]

    Did you get all that snow too? I hate it when it misses us [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/mad.gif[/img] Indiana is boring enough, but add that to no snow this close to Christmas, and that is depressing.
