    Heh, the plants in the wild will be just fine. The snow will keep them at an even 32 F or so and actually protect them from freezing. The experience snow like this ever 5 years or so. I got my flytrap bulbs 2 weeks ago... 43 of 'em. I got em growing under lights and they seem to be waking up nicely. When it warms up a little outside I think I'll move them but I don't want them to get two dormancies in a row They would probably be fine though. My sarras outside are already sending up spring pitchers!!!

    G.C. it is only 1 VFT bulb. I do have it under a summer light period. It is right next to my Nepenthes tank so the light is ample as the Nepenthes are growing. It is next to the highland tank where there is a temp drop at night. Is it dormant? Should I move it away from the light so I won't kill it?

    Well N.G. it sounds like your set-up is good so I have to agree with R.P that it is still having a little travel shock. The best action would be none at all so you do not add to the problem with transplant shock too. Just keep an eye on it, if it does not start to fade then it is just taking it's time in coming around, let it rest. If your worried about the sand being contaminated just flush some distilled water through the pot a few times and that should remove the worst of it. Let us know what happens!

    I'll probably just let it do what it wants to. Thanks for all your help! Nep.G.
