    Cold tolerance of Utricularia calcifida?

    I ordered an Utricularia calcifida earlier this week and it arrives tomorrow. I know this is a tropical species. However, here in Florida it's in the 40s.

    Would U. calcifida be okay outdoors here in Florida, or should I keep it inside until spring?

    I think a few days won't affect it, but why not be on the safe side and keep it indoors for the worst of winter and take it out when it warms up?

    Okay, I'll try that

    Btw, what kind of light should I give it? shade, partial sun, full sun?

    Partial shade or better yet: Diffused sunlight.
