    they can freeze, then sprout again from the roots.

    I am not positive about this, but I have read that some clones of D. binata are apparently more sensitive to freezing than others. I expect that those originating from more tropical climates would survive freezing less well than those from more temperate locations.

    Uh, keeping them frozen until spring might not be a good idea. If possible I would bring them into somewhere that can provide them, at least, minimum culture conditions so they can begin to recover from their ordeal.

    I had mine freeze to 15F but it was only for a few hours when the greenhouse heater went out. A quick freeze might not kill your tropical CPs but a long one will most likely do them in.
