    Freeze Advisory

    I'm wondering what to do about my plants tonight since there's a freeze advisory for tonight (low of about 28). I'm thinking of just bringing them in during the warmest part of the day (high of 47), but with my thermostat set for 64 I'm afraid of temperature shocking them. I don't have any cooler location in which to store them. Anyone have any suggestions, or is my current plan sound? Affected plants include a D. capensis 'red', as well as D. filiformis and a bunch of sarracenia.

    Wouldn't hurt to bring them in until the temps recover.

    I've got VFTs and Sarracenia in a protected corner by the front step. I can put a 4' shop light across a couple boards and cover it with a blanket to help protect them from frosts and freezes. The dews I had to bring in cuz they couldn't handle the cold temps overnight.
