    Why not just find some wind protected area to place your VFT?(like a wall or trees breaking wind) If this is not possible than yes just leave it indoors. BUt VFTs do prefer the outdoors better. My VFTs are sheltered by a mini plexiglass greenhouse(just to break wind.) You are quite lucky to live near the coast. Hot arid places can devestate outdoor CPs. Imagine what I have to get through growing CPs in the semideserts!

    I looked up Richmond, CA on weather.com and I must say you got ideal weather to grow VFTs yearound outdoors. It would be a waste to grow them on a windowsill.

    Outdoors for sure with some protection from the wind.

    AzNsUShi41,
    Grow them outdoors year-round. They will love it. I live a couple hundred miles north of you in Arcata and my VFTs do best when grown outdoors.

    For more photos of my outdoor VFTs, go to
