I have one of them =D came in handy this winter cause it wasn't cold enough in my conservatory, im thinking about moving them all outside permanently cause my collection is getting a little big for the house =P and we get loads of sun in our garden. They should work just as good as a normal greenhouse cause the plastic cover will absorb and trap heat quite well

To stop my greenhouse from blowing over i rested some bricks along the bottom 3 poles, but mine is also in a corner so its quite sheltered from the wind by my house and conservatory.
I think most can as long as the weather is pretty mild or warm i plan to move all mine outside for the summer including my Neps, ive never grown any of mine outside before so im just sort of experimenting to see if they like it. I had to move most of my collection outside this winter so they could get cold enough, my collection is VFTs, Cobra Lilys, Sarras, Neps and Sundews. i think most will cope with living outside in the UK as long as the ones that require slightly warmer temperatures stay warm enough and if it starts to get cold id bring things like Neps and Sundews in as i discovered this year my Sundews don't like the cold =P hope this helps, im still quite a beginner so im still learning too =P

Yes your answer is very nice :) . I will try to do same with my plants :) . This winter realy cold - 7C one night where i`am living. I think to cold, but what about this temperature changes , like outsie ~ -2 and you bring plants inside where is about +18C. I think is can harm litle bit plants, how do you think? :)

i think if you brought them in and there was a massive temperature difference then yeah it probably would shock them and harm them, not sure though but from what ive read on here that seems to be the case that you should try to bring the plants in when the temperatures inside and out are similar, but the temperature is meant to be going up the end of this week so if you wanted to bring them in that would probably be the best time, mine have all survived the really low temperatures that we had this winter and the even lower ones we had last winter. I only ever put my Neps outside when i can guarantee that its going to be warm and that they wont get too cold, the rest of the time they live inside so the transferring of them in and out doesn't effect them as they only go out in the warm sunny weather =)

Alright i see :) , but what you doing for example if temperature outside in night go lower than -8 and you wanna bring plants back? Where is temperature around 18? Still putting them inside or leave outside? :rainingsmile:

Ive been leaving my dormant ones outside, even when it gets as low as -8 my VFTs are now starting to come back so they seem to have survived very well and my sarras are already throwing new pitchers up so looks like its gunna be a good year =D

Haha that sounds like a good idea i might start moving the food outside =P not sure what my parents would think though hehe probably wouldnt be too happy =P
Its closed most of the time but sometimes i open it during the day, ive never left it open overnight though. Do you open yours?

Before i do , but now decide to don`t do it :) . Better if it`s closed , than some micro climate can be inside all the time.
