    since you bring it up, have you found any good ways to get VFTs through dormancy up here? I used to have a bog garden where they would survive outside with pine needles spread over top to shield from the cold but that was at my last residence. Currently I have mine in basement with just enough light to let them know day from night. seems a few have rotted out and I have tried so hard not to overwater

    I leave them in my garage by a window, they get watered once every two weeks or so and I fill the tray they are in with a half inch of water, let them soak it up for a few minutes then I remove them from the tray and empty the water then replace them in the tray. I do this slightly tedious process with each tray. Allows me to keep the soil by the growth point more dry vs. a top water. They go in the garage when it goes below freezing at night and they only go in the basement if it goes below 20 degrees Fahrenheit outside
    A flytrap does not need a deep dormancy to live and thrive if it’s too cold where you are for that you can transfer them inside under lights during the middle of fall when it starts getting cold, mimic the short days with a timer and keep em as cool as ya can

    While most of my flytraps are grown outdoors and go dormant, I have many large flytraps that haven’t been dormant for a few years for various reasons that are thriving

    Beautiful plants Myles. I have been thinking of snagging one of the N. ‘Briggsiana’
    there have been quite a few available. I love that Inermis as well. I recently learned that it’s name means “unarmed” in Latin because it’s uppers completely lack peristomes but make up for it with their syrupy fluid!

    They all look beautiful.

    Thanks man, inermis is such an odd ball but i think between the pure green color and bizarre shape its a must have in a highland collection. Had to ask around to find one. The briggsiana is one of he best hybrids but since almost all come from cuttings they hit me hard in the pocket That peristome tho

    TRYING not to order any new plants need to upgrade my setup in a few months or im going to drown

    A grow tent is a fabric exterior with six sides, which has a lightweight and supported by a rigid frame. It usually has the main entrance as well as different apertures that allow for various functions including ventilation and electrical access.
