    October 31st November 12th So while I was at Lowes a few months back, I noticed some Deathcubes on sale. 50% off. And I'm a sucker for hard luck cases. :) These were the "have some peat, have some plants in ziplock bags that are 'dormant', good luck" type that starting appearing in stores...

    Tebuconazole, anyone have any problems?

    Anybody use tebuconazole on seeds? The Sarr seeds I treated with this stuff during stratification didn't germinate very well at all. Wondering if my problem might have been the fungicide.

    Frig hybernation preperation question

    About to bare root my vft and pitcher plant for storage in the fridge for the winter. I need opinions on whether to just trim dead parts off plants before spraying with fungicide or cut the whole top off the plants.

    For the past three years now I have trimmed back my Sarrs and placed them into the refrigerator when winter came around. It wasn't until I joined this group that I realized they could survive in a bog outside where I live (Nebraska: zone 5b) if special care was taken. Next year I plan to do...
