    Checking the ole' profile it says you live in Dunkirk. How's the grape growing this year? Even had the ice cream on occasion. I lived in Buffalo for about 20 years, so I know where you are coming from - figuratively and literally. Personally, I think the VFT would do well outside for another couple months. They will also survive that first frost in October. Just monitor the weather predictions as October turns to November. While all this is happening, as the temperature waffles downward, the photoperiod is slowly putting the plant(s) to sleep. Depending upon just what turns out to be weather's reality, you can bring the plant inside and then in the fridge for the next 3 months for dormancy.

    I have the same thing. I have 3 neps, 2 vfs, 3 dews in one 10-gallon tank. I have the lighting set for 15 hours a day. Every inch is taken but they are healthy. I realize outside maybe good but I have tree rats and blue jays that peck at my plants [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/mad.gif[/img] . So I keep them inside all year. Just a simple 10-gallon light and leave a 2-inch crack on the top for air you should be fine. If I can I will post a picture....

    Nice to have you on board!

    That's more Fredonia and Chautauqua County. But you still have Dunkirk ice cream, right?
