The beast from the east


Recommended Posts

I have been worried about my sarracenia(only flavas and some hybrids). The beast from the east has been over my region for a week now with temperature at -6 / -9c at night and 0 / -5 at day. How long can they withstand frost in the pots? do they not dehydrate at some point? The temperatures I have described are outdoor temperatures, they are in a greenhouse, so they probably have a little warmer

They'll be happier in the greenhouse because they won't be affected by the drying wind.

A lot of us lost plenty of plants in 2010. It got down to -13 to -15C, so I suspect the more sensitive sarracenia have a lower limit of -12ish.
