    I keep my VFT on my screened porch. It gets about 6 hours of morning sun and I don't have to tell you... it' really hot here (Melbourne, FL).

    He hasn't been through a winter yet but is certainly happy now.

    I live outside Atlanta and the only winter care my VFT's get is after a hard freeze and thaw I replant the ones that were pushed out of the peat and the only mulch they get is from the tree leaves. Mine are growing great.

    i am thinking of trying to grow a bical outside on the ficus tree branch, but today when my dad was trimmign them i hit the big tree with the rake and a lot of wasps came out, baby ones, and i really hate them thank god i havnt been stung yet for the 7 years weve been here :o

    i am worried about the wasps makin a home somewhere on the bical, and i will of course take it in when it gets really rainy during hurricance season

    Mike, FlyGurl,

    I was thinking more the need to bring it in to get the plant cool enough for the winter. I don't have a lot of experience with Titusville winters haveing ony been there a few weekends in Feb, March and May but the lowest temp I saw was 70 in Feb and that seemed a bit too warm for VFTs. If it really does get down to 25 there than I'd say leave 'em out year round.

    No one has to worry about their VFT's getting to chilly in what? Zone 9? The only thing I would be worried about is if they didn't get cold enough. I live in zone 7 (virginia) and I have and bunch of VFT's that are living outside 24/7/365.

    Okay, I'm in Florida also, so what would be ideal if you can't put them outside? I am a native so I don't use as much AC as a lot of people here, but I do have to use it. I think mine are getting too hot in my sunny east window terrarium. Who knows - I have had these for about two years, and they ALL went dormant for about a year because one had a flower stalk, but this spring shot out like crazy. I got a bigger "clear plastic storage box" to put them in. Now I am getting scared since they are kind of pale and some leaves (on different plants in same pot) are turning brown (just the trap part, not the petiole). I think I changed too many factors at once.
