Ok, since the horror of what seems like almost a full loss of just about every vft I own, I had brought them in from the freezing temps of down to 5f.
For those who don't know, they were in my unheated garage doing well, then suddenly the temp dropped to the 20's for a week or so. Then we had about four days here of temps in the lower 50's. During that period of time, and i'm an idiot for not thinking about it, the vft's thawed and dried a bit...then the temps returned into the 20's...and far lower for weeks. I brought them in to thaw since they really didn't look well at all, and the field mouse (or it's family) that's apparently living in the garage for the winter decided vft's were tasty.
They are sitting on a porch that's about 50f maybe a few degrees warmer, probably gets into the mid sixties during the day when the sun hits it. The media is thawed, and now the dried up yellow/red/green colors on the plants look mostly limp, brown, black, or for lack of a better description, dead. You know how a vft leaf looks after it's died back and it's been sitting on wet media for a little bit? That soggy dark look? That's what most look like.
I'm guessing they could still exist, but i'd rather not wait until they are completely awake a few weeks into the spring to figure out that they rotted.
I've been debating and debating, plus some extremely heavy thinking...and am 99% sure that I should repot every single one of them so as to inspect the rhizomes for rot, or to see if there is even a rhizome left. I'm hoping that if there is at least a sliver of white left to it, I can repot and by a small chance something late in the season will sprout.
What is everyone's opinion on what would be the best way to handle a situation such as this? [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/rock.gif[/img]
