    I live in Ohio and our winters are fairly long. My Sars have been in dormancy since october and after looking at the weather history reports they won't be out of dormancy till about April. That's almost 7 months. So I was wondering if I could dig up my Sar rhyzomes plant them in pots and wake them up indoors under growlights? About what temperature do they need to be to wake up? I was just thinking it'd be nice to see my pitchers every once in a while...

    its really only 5 months.
    real winter dormancy begins about November,
    and ends late March (about now)
    your plants are probably coming out of dormancy right now, you just cant see it yet. they are "stirring" right now..roots may even be growing as we speak..
    IMO, I think it would be much better for your plants to leave them alone and let nature take its course naturally..
    digging them up can only add unnecessary stress..
    I vote for being patient and leaving them alone!
    real spring should only be one or two weeks away..
    it will warm up soon..
