    Back in April I received some VFT's and one plant fell apart when I was unwrapping it. So I put the leaves in my live, swampy, LFS, to see if they would sprout. They did and i'm not sure what to do with them for the next several months.

    Below is a picture of the type of tray and conditions they are in, minus the B. liniflora and D. binata.

    Should I try to transplant and acclimate them to life outside? Should I keep them right where they, in the attic, by the window? Can they survive a dormancy in the attic, assuming the temps will range from the 30's->50's?

    i would try to put them out side...they will do much better than inside. and for the attic...yes they can or you could mulch tem outside.
