    Packages were sent out today. Dustin and Peter have S. x "Judith Hindle" divisions, and Daniel and Jerry get N. x ventrata rooted cuttings. Oh, and Goldtrap, your ventrata went out too.

    This is the first time I've packaged and sent plants, so please let me know how they came through the mail.

    The S. x "Judith Hindle came today! Nice job with the packing, the plant came in excellent condition and looks very healthy.
    By the way does the Sarracenia you sent me still need dormacy, or is it ready to planted immediately? If it's still in dormacy when can I take it out of the fridge and plant it?

    Thanks for the plant,
    Pete

    Peter,

    Excellent! It lived outside, so it was dormant when I sent it. I'd keep it that way until, um, actually I'm not sure until when. Out here in California, we just keep 'em outside and let nature take care of the timing. I don't remember where you live, but if it's in a non-snowy climate, go ahead and plant it outside immediately.

    I live in Michigan and in the next few days it's expected to go below zero, will the Sarracenia survive that if left in a unheated garage where temps will freeze the whole pot? As of right now the plant's in the fridge...

    Peter,

    According to Dustin, who is in New York, it should be fine in the garage, but I would wait until the upcoming freezing spell is over. He says his leuc (one of the Judith Hindle parents) survived temps below zero. Your garage is probably a few degrees warmer than the outside temps, so it should be fine.

    Yep, leucophylla was frozen to -20F last year....no damage to it whatsoever. Frozen for 3 days I think. That's on an unheated porch too in a 5 inch deep pot! Pretty draned tough for a southern Sarracenia. Generally in my expierence Sarracenia and other temperate CP's wll be just fine if they get exposed to very cold weather just sa long as it's not a long hard freeze. If it;s a 3 day freeze should be fine. Also make sure the soil is wet. Freezing drys out soil and yuo don't want a dry freeze, you want a healthy freeze.
