    I would wait till after Halloween to put it in the fridge. At that time, the days are shorter which will signal the vft to go into dormancy. Growth of new traps will be slow and traps will be smaller. Older traps will turn black. After nature puts the vft to sleep, I would remove the vft bulb and cut off all the remaining leaves (above the soil line). I then wrap the bulb with sphagnum moss (or a wet paper towel), and place in sealed plastic bag for fridge storage till Easter.

    Others have suggested sealing the entire pot/soil/plant in plactic bag rather than removing the bulb. You decide!

    As for your mold/fungus, remove the bag for a few days, but mist the vft twice daily (for humidity). If the mold/fungus dissappears, continue with misting method, instead of bag.

    Thank you so much.I think I'm going to go with the putting pot/soil/plant in the fridge instead of excavating the plant method.

    Hello
    Usually we wait untill Thanks Giving to put our plants into dormacy. How cold does it get outside where you're at? last year I put mine outside and they did fine aslong as you put them somewhere safe of frost and snow. Like right next to the house or in the garage if you have one with a window.

    Also vfts realy dont need humidity that much I guess its ok to keep it covered sometimes but if you keep it covered all of the time you are just asking for mold or fungus not to mention vfts like good air circulation. If you notice your traps turning black alot very quickly then you need to take the cover off. Maybe put it on at night and uncover durring the day?

    Question

    I'm going to mark that on my calender.Will I have to put fungicides on the plant before putting it in the fridge?And will regular liquid fungicides for plants kill my flytrap?I'm planning on spraying normal liquid fungicide for plants on the surfuce of the soil and the parts of the plant that is above the soil.I found this fungicide in my garage and it might be piosonous to my plant.I'm afraid my plant will suck up the fungicide and die.I forgot to tell you I'm going to put the plant in the fridge with the pot and soil all on.

    Since you have had a problem with fungus, you probably should just to be safe. I haven't had any problems with fungus when I have put mine into the fridge. I put them in baggies, pot and all, put a date on the baggie so I'll know when I put them in the fridge. I check once or twice a month to be sure fungus hasn't started growing and to air them a little.
