    LOL FROZEN IN A BIG BLOCK OF ICE! LOL....excuse me...to much cartoons there dude... that doesnt happen.
    You dont keep yours in a pot for dormancy? And it should have been in the fridge not freezer, you should have put a cover over it and only watered it like once a week.[/QUOTE]
    Once a week?! Dang, that begs for crown rot and fungle infection. Try keeping it moist in a twist tied plastic bag and checking on it like once a month to see how things are going. I have maybe had to give water to a plant once one time. Oh and to prevent freeze, put it in a spot nere the top of the fridge away from where the cooler is and in a paper bag.

    Thanks for all the info. It's not looking good. I think I'll order some more VFTs today.
    Thanks

    with the refrigrator method, doing bare-root OR in pots, you seal them in a plastic bag so that NO air can escape..that holds all the mositure in and NO watering at all is necessary all winter! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]
    I put my plants in the 'fridge for dormancy..seal them up in their pots, and dont even LOOK at them until they come out of the fridge 3-4 months later..works great. they never dry out..the water cant escape the bag! therefore its impossible for the plants to dry out..

    I left my VFTs and Sarrs in thier pots over the winter and put them in a very cold section of my leaky old basement. The soil froze solid several times. I now have them in my grow room under my 1000 watt light and they are all showing signs of new growth.

    Good luck with your plant.
