    Water trays

    The majority of mine have been sitting outside in trays all winter, so have been frozen solid and the water levels have varied with the weather. Unless you have recently put them outside from inside somewhere, I wouldn’t worry. Cheers Steve

    Venus fly traps frozen solid

    They should be fine, mineeoutside in the uk and go under 0C with the weather conditions and are fine, it’s the desiccating wind that does more damage. cheers steve

    Does anyone keep their sarracenia outside?

    They can take some very low temps (mine have been down to minus 15 in the past) without too much detriment, however it’s frequent freeze thaw cycles that cause problems and freezing temps with desiccating winds effectively freeze drying the plant. Dryer is commonly said to be better than wet, although I have both conditions and the plants have been OK.

    Westland peat moss

    My few local suppliers seem to have changed over to Westland in the last twelve months, presumably there is a financial reason for doing so. Knowing the previous experiences of other growers and indeed myself I asked the question of Westland and got the following reply. So so in theory all is well. Cheers steve

    Temperature for a VFT

    I've had them down to -15 or more outside with some cover over them. Not recommended though it takes them a long while to get going in spring. cheers steve
