Tropical Sundews During the Winter

Well, I have some tropical sundews growing outside, and they are thriving! Although, I was wondering what should I do when winter comes around? I know I will have to take them inside. Sadly, I can't get a floresent light because my stupid mother thinks I'm going to grow marijana and I can't put it up on a windowsill because my only SOUTH facing window is facing a forest and not enough light gets through. :cry: I can't grow them outside year round because it's to cold; last year's lowest temp. was 15'F degrees.

Do you have an east or west facing window? That could work out too.

If your mom doesn't believe you, you should show her this thread so she will buy you some lights. That's messed up..

Is there any reason she thinks you might be growing it (other family members growing it/you growing it previous to this time)? If not just let her know exactly what the marijuna plant looks like, then ask her to browse your plants whenever she pleases, and as long as you don't actually grow any :D she shouldn't get to upset?

No, none of my family members grow it.

Thanks David, I'll tell her that.
