    Location and putting it on ignore (not messing with it).

    The overnight freezes have ended, now lots of rain.

    It still survives! It seems to be in a sort of suspended growth, but still green. We are getting some snowfall so thought I would snap a shot of it in the snow.

    Later in the day. I am interested to see how it fared under the snow when it melts off.

    I added another shot taken later in the day today as the snow kept coming down. The snow will most likely be melted off by tomorrow, we don't usually get snow that stays on the ground for long. I will snap a shot of it and post when the snow melts.

    Fascinating...these guys are definitely tougher than most would suggest. I wonder what it is that's letting the drylander survive these "terrible" conditions...
    Everything has a reason, whether big or small. Never underestimate the power of what is or is not.
    There is far more to everything than meets the eye.

    For curiosity's sake, does anyone nerdier than I happen to know a ballpark for Drosophyllum's lowest average temp in situ?

    I think the jury will be out whether they can survive these conditions all the way through winter, with January usually being the coldest month, so we will see how they look come spring as I have two potted adults outside also.

    I wonder if mine, being 4th generation from seed starting with my original plant 4 or 5 years ago, may be adapting to colder winters? Is this possible in such a short period of time? Or maybe they are all just more cold tolerant than anybody thought and nobody has really tested the limits in cultivation, at least I have not run across any literature about it yet.

    I have read that higher elevation Drosophyllum in situ can experience lows in the high teens at times with warming to above freezing during the day. In my conditions this winter so far, it has always warmed up to above freezing during the day and overnight is the only time it has been below freezing. Historically, we donít usually see 24/7 freezing temps until January and some years we donít at all.
