    FTG I was just in FL a while ago and bought a VFT down there. I had TONS of carpenter ants at my hotel and the VFT simply caught them all. I think you shouldn't be afriad at all of them hurting your VFT. i have them up here too and they do nothing except get caught. They don't hurt when they bite also IMO.

    Okay, okay. You guys have finally convinced me. I just went out and put both of the VFTs outside in front of the sunroom next to my noncarnivourus potted plants on top of a three foot tall brick edged planter. The great thing is, They are at the same level as the sunroom windows, so I can easily enjoy them from inside the sunroom![img]http://www.**********.com/iBhtml/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img]

    FlytrapGurl,

    I think outside Titusville should be just fine for them during the growing season, not too sure about your winters though.

    Oh I'll definetly bring them in during winter. It never snows here but we often get pretty severe frosts, and the normal winter temp is usually 25*F at the lowest and 45*F at the highest.

    Hi Flytrapgurl & Pyro,
    What do you mean by 'bringing the flytraps in for winter'! Venus Flytraps live in North and South Carolina and I am sure the best thing for your plants are to keep them outside all year round. They need a cold winter and they are hardier than you think!
    In England, temperatures get down to around 12 degrees F withiout heating in the greenhouse, the pots all frozen solid and not one loss (400 plants here). VFT need a winter dormancy and near Tallahasee, you can find VFT which has been naturalised there for years so the best would be... Keep them outside all year if you live in Florida! I would...!!
