Conservatory for dormancy?

by VFT_Grower66 » Wed Aug 14, 2019 3:57 pm

Would my conservatory be a good place to over winter my vft? I think it would here are my reasons:
1. I live in the north west of the uk so outside the temperature will most likely be to harsh for my vft as it would be in a small pot, unprotected.
2. My conservatory is south facing so gets some sun in the winter
3. The temperature is cold but not too cold for my vft.

Does anyone know if this would be ok and what the temperature of conservatories are?

If your conservatory stays mainly in the 0-18 C range, it sounds like a great idea. If it gets colder, add a heater. Warmer, crack a window.
