    It's been really cold here for about 3 weeks so my plants are hiding underneath fish tanks. They have kind of gone into a suspended animation - no growth or black bits. The annoying thing is that they catch more food in the greenhouse in winter than in summer. There must be some slow moving creatures in there, the traps should take about 20 seconds to close in theory [img]http://www.**********.com/iBhtml/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] My Red Dragon is also looking almost completely green - roll on spring!

    We started to get some realy heavy frost over here and since I put them into dormacy mid October I took mine out of dormacy. I guess you can say that I got impatient cause I missed them but Jaie said that they only needed a couple of months of dormacy. That was all I needed to hear. They are doing great I've repotted them and they didn't suffer any shock at all. I just fed one a sow bug and I am hoping that it doesnt turn the trap black like a lady bug will.
    Mine were eating also durring dormacy when I took them out of dormacy I opened a trap after I cut it off and the sucker looked as if it ate a slug. YUCK!

    mine (typical and dente) are "trying" to go dormant. I placed them in the cold outdoors since thanksgiving and none of em went done! What a bunch of rebels lol! They just keep producing leaves. My S.minor went down into dormancy pretty fast..but my purpurea wont go dormant. Most have been the feeding of crickets, flies, mealworms, etc during the growing season eh?

    My traps are all growing steadily and still munching the egg white. Why? Because I received them in July when they were in dormancy and they are not sleepy. Hehehe...

    Don't envy me, I've got to spend on electrical bills although I'm at One North...weather's too gloomy here. My sarras are in the fridge with my can drinks. Fortunately, my bro didn't think they were ginger...he uses ginger in every meal he cooks!

    Winter has finally hit our area. My flytraps and sarrs are asleep on the porch (guess they are dreaming of bugs instead of sugarplums LOL). There is a good chance they won't make it though, I had hoped to keep the porch at about 35F, but they last few days have been bitter cold, lowest temp on the porch was 22F, gets to about 32 or better during the day. Everything is frozen solid. I'm going to stick it out though and see what happens. I'm kind of counting on my freeze/thaw theory. If everything stays frozen, they may make it. Good reason to buy more if they don't.

    I brought my S.Pupurea spp. Venosa and my Darlingtonia in since they were near frozen solid!! Now they are still chilly but are thawed out. I put them by a cold door still. Nep.G.
