    I've been growing for 7-8 years give or take. I live in Georgia. I can't grow Dionaea for some reason. I've never been able to keep one alive for a whole year.

    Really? I've been growing for over 14 years, especially at year one, boy was I fat. Can't you just buy a mini-fridge to put them in if you turn it all the way up? Maybe put a light or two in there.

    Three weeks after I bought my first VFT something yanked it right out of it's pot and ran away with it. I haven't gotten another one yet.

    VFT's don't suck. They bite.

    No we have a winter here but if they don't rot they freeze to death up in the mountains.

    Or they get eaten by aphids.

    Or catch a fungus....

    Luckily for me they aren't my favorite plant.

    notanumber, that was AWFUL!!!!!! LMAO good one sir!!!

    I live near Niagara Falls and I leave them either outside or in my windowsill over the winter, they SEEM to do okay, I think I've had them for maybe 5 years, some of them??

    Critters are the only problem, a had a HUGE Akai Ryu last summer and one day I went out and it, too, was GONE!!!

    It had been buried in my bog tho, somewhere else- I dug it up and repotted it but it didn't look too good until it woke up again last month- I'm building a safety cage for it before it goes back out there...

    They can be kinad goofy sometimes, but I think I am lucky to have the winter we get, it sure as heck isn't my "skill" keeping them alive and healthy

    JLAP, You live in Georgia's Moutains? Those are nothing to the teens(some times single digits) that we get up here in the NC mountains and my flytraps did WONDERFULLY in the ground this year. My bog even froze over a couple times (like they were under an inch of ice) and they are coming out nicely. This year I'm moving EVERYTHING to a bog garden in the ground. I should think they'd be happy in the ground where you are. By the way, VFT rot seems to be the popular way to kill VFTs. That's how ALL mine have died at some point or another..... how sad.
