i am probably the newest addition to the forum
i am buying a year only VFT some 25 seeds and a ready mix to jumpstart my new addiction
ive read all the beginners guides here and i have some questions that will probably sound silly to you but i just want to be sure.
so here it goes:
1) i live in winnipeg and its very cold here. will the winter dormancy can be achieved by putting the plant near the cold window? its average -16 outside goind to be -30. at my place its usualy 20-25celcius and its always colder near the window and he will get some light...not much.
2) we dont get much sun in here in the winter. should i use a timed for specific amount of hours lamp to light my plants? A "CFL" or those "special plant bulbs" or nothing at all what is better?
3) the ones im buying alive they are bare root and dormant ((from http://www.keehnscarnivores.ca/ by the way)) what is the best way to not shock them into their new surroundings? im buying the soil-mix from the same place to give them what they have been growing in all along.
4)this one is pretty much simple but just to make sure- watering my plants with melted snow(in the microwave or oven, not heated just melted) is good right...? snow i have lots of here
any other tips i would love to read
thanks in advance guys.
