    Check out Scot's thread on the subject.

    Thanks for the great info guys. The fridge method does seem the most practical so I think I will do it that way. As far as using fungicide goes, Physan 20 is suitable right? Thanks again.

    I live about a mile from the beach. Even so there is some salt spray judging from the amount of corrosion that bare metal gets.

    I periodically spray my plants down using a spray bottle of RO water, then top water and allow the runoff to drain away. During the winter I make sure the pots are well drained before replacing the trays.

    I would only use the refrigeration method if there is absolutely no alternative

    Yeah. but sometimes the soil gets a coat of salt on top of it. I could jump off my porch into the sand. (If I clear the boardwalk )

    why dont you just put the terrarium OUTSIDE? upside down maybe, or a snug glass top, so the salt cant get in but the photoperiod, temps, etc...are the same? seems alot easier to me haha!

    Yes, via the greenhouse effect. Mmmmm... cooked flytraps.


    Maxx, I don't know how big your collection is and how serious you are about the hobby, but maybe you can look into investing in or even building a mini or small sized greenhouse:

    I don't know how effective it would be in your situation, so take this just as an idea pitch. I saw someone on CPUK use something similar... I'll see if I can find the topic.
