hello every one
well i been thinking putting my plants into dormacy in october,but i planted my vft in a heavy terrarium on the north windowsill and yes its facing north !! the whole house only have 2 south facing window and 1 patio... but i m not allow to use those window. so ya... but the terrarium is perfectly fit to the window, and my question is. will my vft able to go in to dormacy / survive in the terrarium? this is what i m going to do
lift the window open and put 1/10 of the terrarium out. and 9/10 of the terrarium stay in. the glass is only like 3/10 inch thick. so i think the cold temperature will able to get in to the terrarium pretty good, and also cover the terrarium keep the cold stay in the terrarium .and seal the gap to prevent cold air getting in side the house . is this a good idea? i don't want to move the plant out of teh soil and stuff.
another question.. is unknow temperature outside might be what if it drop to freezing point. altho the plant won't cover in snow but at freezing point at night, inside the terrarium is like a freezer, open the terrarium cover let the cold in get in the house =o ? so any suggestion?
now is summer is not the right time to talk about dormacy yet, but best protection is early protection.
oh i live in Maryland, USA btw =]
