    I just took my plants out of their pots to put in the refrigerator and see I need to update this thread with photo's I've had but never posted:

    Sept 16, 2016 Plants fully grown. Smallest plants in lower right pot didn't all make it. Only one.:

    Today, Dec 13, 2016. Took the plants out of their pots. They've been in my garage in very dim light since the first hard frost. I think the coldest we've had since then is low to mid 20's overnight. The outdoor ground is not frozen yet. Later this week we are predicted to get down to the single digits or so. These are the plants after breaking off the perfectly good leaves and traps and roots. Washed in cold tap water and storing this year in moist long fiber peat moss in a sealed plastic bag in the back of the refrigerator.

    I have peat moss soaking overnight and plan on repotting all of my VFT tomorrow. I have not looked at them since Dec 13, 2016.

    Well another year has gone by and I took my VFT and one S. leucophylla out of the refrigerator today and potted them in fresh sphagnum peat moss. I noticed just the bare beginnings of a fungus on the S. leucophylla when I took it out to pot up. I didn't use any fungicide/sulfur dust. I just potted it up. They are outside in the weather now since it is so mild. I'll be watching for cold snaps and will move them back into my garage.

    Video taken today of the VFT potting. It is uploading now and won't be available for a few hours. The link is correct though:

    Here is a video of my potting of the Sarracenia today. I used some of the same footage as the VFT video since it showed the preparations:

    Hi Jerry!
    I always hit mine with a little sulphur based fungicide but mine tends to have a tiny bit of fungus when I take them out. The fungicide takes quick care of it. I love when I can take them out and start the year!

    The first video doesn't play for me.

    I just checked both video links and both played for me. I did duplicate part of the video between the two in order to have each be complete showing the materials needed. I don't have the best video skills. Just learning the editing too.

    The first one now plays fine for me. Go figure!
