Last year I started Sarracenia seeds and VFT leaf cuttings. I've had them in the attic in the heat of the summer and now the cold of the winter. In other words, I am putting them through dormancy, which is the opposite of nearly all the advice given about first year plants / seedlings. They are right by the window sill, as opposed to being in a baggie / in a fridge. They've been through through the lowest of the photoperiod and just experienced the coldest Arctic temps of the season. So far they don't look any worse for the wear. So hopefully they'll get through the rest of the winter without a hitch.
