    The freezing temps appears to have killed my Nepenthes Ventricosa

    As some of you know, Florida was hit by a freak wave of freezing weather. Now as the weather is warming up, the damage can be seen.

    It appears my Nepenthes Ventricosa will kick the bucket. The growing point and most of the leaves are now brown. However, the Nepenthes Singalana and Khanasi are still alive.

    Drosera Adelae appears to have survived, but I have cuttings of that just in case.

    I also don't think my Pinguicula Lutea will make it either, but the Primuiflora still looks good. All the Mexican Pinguicula (Esseriana, Agnata, and Pirouette) survived.



    Not to mention most of the grass in my neighborhood is now brown.

    I woouldn't be surprised SK, Wolfn, maybe consider growing indoors, so you have more control over conditions.

    the only neps that can take the 30s well are villosa and lamii. and potentially khasiana since its insanely cold resistant...im sorry but you should have known that neps cant take those temps.

    Odd, my N. x ventrata seems to be fine. But then again, it's a large, stable plant, so I would have to imagine that it would be more resistant. I'm sorry for your loss. :<

    Hehe, I would rather live in a warm climate than a cold climate any day! :P

    This is actually very true. Seeing that the temperature was so much lower than usual, they did give warnings and talked about it before the cold front came.
