I have started doing the VTF thing about two months ago. *I had bought one of each from **********, and they seems to be doing well (excpt for the Red Dragon, but is starting to grow 2 new traps). * The question I have to start off is this:
I keep the plants in my windowsill in my basement, uncovered/no lid. *after the time change this weekend, the plants will receive about 8-9 hours of direct sun between 1pm- 8pm. *I have put up a screen that confines the 4 plants in about a 10-12 in width. *Reason for this, is to keep my cat from trying to eat them. *I noticed yesterday when I came home from work, and went to water them, the temp was a little over 90 degrees, but when I removed the screen, in about 5 minutes, the temp dropped back below 80. *
Apparently the sunlight coming thru the window is heating up this little space from the reflection from the screen. *I live about 5 hours north from where the vtf's grow in the wild, and the outside temp today is like 50-54. *I am wondering when July/Aug rolls around when the outside temps are high 80's to mid 90's, if that would put the inside temp probably over 100, and was wondering if that was too hot, hurt the plant. etc.
I have basically followed the care info provided with the plants (ie enough light, water etc) *but haven't run across this.
Thanks, and sorry so long. *Be easy on me, I'm new at this!
