    But Venosa? And I don't want to risk my Darlingtonia. Unless they can stand night temps here in 22F almost everynight. Along with Venosa. It was side by side with the Darlingtonia but now they still are side by side but thawed out.

    Well if my VFTs and sarras weren't in dormancy they sure oughta be now! We went from summer-like weather to days in the 30s and nites in the 20's. It's cold here! I'm a little worried about freezing too. Maybe tomorrow I'll move the cage onto my back porch. They are calling for a little snow on Thursday...YAY!!! I hope it snows a foot deep but not likely. I LOVE snow! Usually when they say its going to snow, it doesnt. But hope springs eternal....

    I am already thinking of spring...we are past the winter solstice so the days are getting longer! Couple more months and dormancy will be rolling back. Will be interesting to see what survived and how things grow. I'm afraid I've lost most of the VFTs to grubby squirrel paws. :-(

    Nep G the cobra lillies can handle freezing cold weather so don't worry about those. They are from the mountains of Oregon and California where it snows quite a bit and they love darn near freezing roots since they are naturally watered from the melting snow. I think by looking at mine that the only real damage they get from it is thier pitchers turn brown and dented in looking. But that's all part of dormacy, plants unfortunately sometimes die down [img]http://www.**********.com/iBhtml/non-cgi/emoticons/sad.gif[/img] but they'll be back [img]http://www.**********.com/iBhtml/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]
    See here's mine it looks like crap but it's getting new larger pitchers I have 2 others 1 realy looks bad I snipped off the top of a pitcher, it was dead anyway, and I am trying Super thrive to see if it helps.

    OK I'll put that Cobra Lily back out there since it oves cold temps. I knew it could take cold temps but wasn't sure just how cold. At night here it gets about at average 22 F but can be even colder like 10 and you say this is OK for the CL? Well OK if you say so. But i forgot days temps go to 35-45 so it warms up fairly quick. What about the Venosa???

    I would put it outside next to the house or somewhere where the real heavy frosts can't get to it only because it sucks to have them die back down and they look ugly when they do. I am pretty sure that if they get the heavy frosts they can handle it since in thier natural enviroment they get burried in the snow sometimes.But like I said I bet they are ugly when the snow thaws and lets face it nobody likes ugly plants! Do you have a place like a garage where the frost can't get to it? Or a covered patio next to the house would work since if you look the frost doesn't get so bad there.
    Oh and I realy don't know anything about the venosa sorry [img]http://www.**********.com/iBhtml/non-cgi/emoticons/sad.gif[/img]
