    Can nepenthes seed be shipped in freezing weather ?

    I'm thinking of trying some nepenthes seed, can I have it shipped here from across the pond to freezing Michigan (19 degrees last night) ? I'm ready to buy online, but was wondering about this before I hit buy it now (from you know where)

    Thanks,
    Dan

    If the seed freezes...it dies....HL nep seed can take fridge temps...LL nep seed can't take temps below 50F. Hope this helps.
    Some days it just isn't worth chewing thru the restraints.

    Thanks for the fast reply ! I had just found my answer and was going to delete this post.

    I picked the wrong time of the year to get back into nepenthes

    I would assume mass is correct considering this statement:
