    I do plan to try the refigerator dormancy for the winter, since I want to keep them as healthy as possible. They do love the direct sunlight.

    I am an experimenter, so I have tried a variety of approaches. Last summer I put my temperate sundews, American pitcher plants, and cobra lily in buckets of minibogs. When winter came I toted the buckets to the attic and placed a SW window sill, as is. As the photoperiod increased, the plants, one by one, began to wake up. The only plants I lost were 2 VFT's. I'm not convinced that my experiment failed, since the other plants came back just fine. They may have been on their way out before I took them up. Some people use fungicides and ziplock bags as well. There's more than one way to do dormancy.

    LOL! Geez... 3 bad experiences with that stream and I get branded for life! But no one remembers the toilet I fixed with bungy cords and a shoelace. Didn't use duct tape at all!

    I do. It was a sight to behold. Looked like one good flatulent outburst and it would have fallen apart .

    It was a masterpiece.... a hybrid between Oliver Twist & "ghetto". All I needed was some epoxy to put the pieces back together again and some flashing with holes in it to put the toilet seat bolts in, and bungy cords to keep the bowl stable, and the shoelace connected to the bungy cords & trap to keep bungy cords from slipping. It worked well for 6 months, until my wife, who has a tad more aesthetic tastes, cut a deal with a friend, to buy a new toilet. I shoulda taken a picture!
