Hi Jeff,

hope you are fine. Our temperatures are raising, finally. More than 40 F at night and up to 60 F in daytime. See attached weather forecast.

Am I fine to bring outside my Drosera regia, Drosophyllum and Cephalotus again?

Thanks and have a great weekend!


Hi JP,

Sorry for taking so long on this.  This has been a very busy week.  Also, mine and Jacob's deepest condolences for you and your community in Belgium.  I sincerely hope you had no losses from the tragedy.

Those temperatures are totally fine to put those plants outside.  Just watch for unexpected late frosts.  It will nip those plants for sure.  We have to do the same thing here.  Grape and Hop growers are very nervous in Oregon right now since things have begun blooming so early.

Good Growing!

No terrariums. No myths. No nonsense.
Just the straight facts from guys who grow and propagate
thousands of carnivorous plants each year.

Our focus is to help help growers diagnose a specific plant problem and offer solutions. For example:
  • Why is my sundew not producing dew?
  • Is now a good time to divide my Sarracenia?
  • Why are the traps turning black?
  • What's a good substitute for perlite?
  • Why didn't my seeds germinate?
  • How do you deal with pests?
  • Can you identify this carnivorous plant for me?
We no longer answer general, how-to questions that are already posted on our website or demonstrated in our DVDs. For general plant care, please read our care guides:
