Utricularia longifolia hardiness?

Recommended Posts

Hey people. Just a quick, relatively simple question.

 

I live in a climate zone 9B. Can my U. longifolia grow outdoors here?

This link says it should be able to hack it, but I want a second opinion because it is the only link I have found that doesn't simply refer to it as, "Tropical". I can grow it in my intermediate-highland Nepenthes setup, but I would prefer to keep the little guy outside.

 

I look forward to your input! Thanks in advance. :D

I kept one outside and it survived well temperatures around 3-5*C, even night frosts like -1/-2*C. Eventually it died during lower, regular frosts (it was in a pot). I don't know how long it could survive in gourd in so low temperatures. Maybe some small plastic cover to protect it from wind would be a good idea... But there is a chance for regular form to survive in this zone. Either way, there is a point in trying.
