    Does anyone know how cold tolerant tuberous Drosera are? I am starting to plan for the winter and figure that if I can keep my tuberous 'dews outside it'll help me with indoor space. It doesn't often drop below freezing in Atlanta but it can hold around 40 for a few days at a time.

    Most tuberous sundews will tolerate short cold spells no where under freezing. I think tuberous sundews only go dormant when it is really dry and hot....I could be wrong....well that's all i can say.

    I vaguely recall hearing 20 degrees minimum for peltata, although I could be wrong. I have don't know about other species though. My peltata seedlings have gone down to the mid 30s at night a couple times already, with no problems yet.
