I'm taking it that the night time temperatures is what is prompting the migration? Seems my ventrata cuttings/rootings(?) are just now "getting in the groove" with the lower temperatures.

Yeah, my rule of thumb is night time temps below 55 I bring them in. They probably would do okay with a drop like that for one night, but moving them will already be stressful on them and I don't want to set them back any further.

It looks like down here in lower Alabama Saturday and Sunday night the temperatures will drop into the mid-40F's...but, then it bounces back up into the 50F's Monday night and on into the lower 60's afterwards... :?:

Ah, well, it's a single pot so I might just bring it inside for a couple of nights and then set it back out. I know moving them inside and back outside isn't the best for them but they're really growing better since the temperature has dropped outside. :?

Yeah, I've been watching the temps these past few weeks. Every day going "almost . . ."

Looks like this weekend will be it though.

I hear you. My temps have been great, but a front moves in tonight, dropping temps to the high 40's. The next two weeks only see a couple nights in the 50's, so time to hang them in the kitchen window.

Expecting sun and low 70's, in Seattle. Next few days should be nice. The 2 Neps I have are already inside.

So when should I bring in Sundews, VFT's and Sarrs? Most were just re potted a couple weeks ago due to squirrels.

frost warning tonight on the northern front range of colo.
VFTs will be going more dormant than they already are: larger upper traps have been going black for a couple of weeks now.

Right about the first frost is about the time I suggest. Then find a cool, dark place for them until spring.

The harbinger of the cold front passed through last night coming back from a ballgame on some *very* rural roads. It was a widespread and very fine mist of a rain. It must have lasted a couple of hours yet only put probably an inch of water in my buckets sitting under the roof overhang. Temperature got down to 61F and is currently sitting at 67F at 9:30am CST. Forecast for tonight is a low of 44F. It is an absolutely BEAUTIFUL DAY...some white stretched out clouds floating around, a beautiful blue sky, breezy, cool...seriously, it don't get much better than this!!!! :D

Panman, the goldenrod down here has been blooming for a couple of weeks now...wild aster, too. The honey bees last chance at stashing food for the winter...the goldenrod makes the hives smell kinda like old socks, but the honey is great...it's stronger tasting than some people like, but I like it. I need to pick up a couple of quarts of fresh honey...I've still got bees, but I don't work them anymore...I just let them..."bee". :lol:
