    Unhappy

    I live in north Texas. I put my plants in the shade in late November for their dormancy. They are outside on the balcony where they are constantly shaded. All I do is put distilled water in the pots occasionally to keep them from drying out. Will my guys be ok like this?

    (my first dormancy... in case you haven't noticed)

    Well I think you could grow VFTs year round in your climate outdoors. I live in sou cali and the all my VFTs do well in the 100 F summers and 40-67F winters. Right now my VFTS are happily dormant. Your plants should be fine.

    EDIT: Oh ya, forgot about one thing, you might want to give your VFTs some sun. Maybe 4 hours of weak sun is sufficient.

    okay thanks. By the way, do you happen to have any pictures of how they should look while dormant?
