Is it okay to move them outdoors?

by zoliky » Mon Mar 20, 2017 12:03 pm

Hello, my flytraps just came out of dormancy. I would like to move them outdoors in full morning sun. The forecast said that daytime temperatures won't drop below 50F anymore, but there will a few days during the next weeks when temperatures can drop to 37-38F during the night. 37-38F will be the mimium. Is it okay to move them outdoors having this conditions?

If it drops below freezing then protect your plants. Other than that they'll be fine.

I can't trust my weather man with those predictions. If he says 38° it may go down close to 30° and add wind chill factor. I regret putting mine outside when I heard the forcast

If it goes down to 35-30F, I'll definitely bring them indoors overnight. Thank you.

Even with some winds, 30 F should not harm your plants.

If it is windy, you can cover them and they should be fine. The danger of freezes is drying out, not the temps.
