Right now I have S. purpurea, S. purpurea dracula and S. judith soper outside on my balcony, in their individual pots in a bigger pot with no drainage. Where I live during winter, all nights it's below freezing, lowest it gets is -6 C and during the day it never goes below freezing, around 2-4 C. Next week I'm planing to make a mini bog in that long pot they are in in the photo and put all the plants in it to protect the rhizomes better from freezing. I cover the plants every night with a tarp because the temperatures are already below freezing during the night.
From what I've read, S. psittacina and VFT can't survive in freezing temperatures so IDK if it's a good idea to put them in this mini bog. Some people say they have no problem freezing every day, others say that they will die if they freeze. My other option is to keep them in a room that has 16-19 C during the night. Or maybe the fridge method, but I don't think I can make enough space in the fridge.
I attached a photo with how the plants are now. The bigger pot they are in is the pot I plan to turn into a bog.
