I just ordered a few VFTs and have a lot of questions about them. *I will greatly appreciate it if anyone can answer them. *
If I take good care of my VFT plants and follow the recommended tips on this site, how long can I expect them to last?
Also, I have read from many web sites that I will have to take the VFTs out of their pots, spray them with fungicide, keep them moist, place them in zip lock bags, and put them in the fridge during the winter. *I am curious as to whether or not there is any way that I can keep the VFTs alive during the winter without having to take them out of their pots. *As I have said before, I just ordered them and I am not confident on whether or not I will be able to take them out of their pots (If it is a must), without causing any damage to them.
I live in Northern California. *During the winter, highs can be around 60 F and Lows can be around 35 F. *The weather includes light sprinkling, fog, and mist (in winter). *Knowing this before hand, is it safe to keep the VFTs in the garage instead of placing them in the fridge? In addition, this question might seem silly, but do I still have to feed the VFTs while it is dormant (I am thinking, no)? *Last, but not least, do I water them while they are dormant?
Thanks in advance. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]
