Hi, I have now a few 1 year old VFT seedlings, and would like to know if they need to hibernate this winter, as I can keep them in the terrarium as I did last winter.

Thanks in advance.

Seedlings mature faster if you skip the first domancy, so I would keep them in a terrarium and give them a dormancy in 2012.

What's their diameter? If they're large enough (ca. 2'') I'd give them a dromancy period.

You can keep them terra if the temperature is 10 ° inferieue has to survive the winter.
