Temperate Species
The temperate species are found in those regions which experience colder winters. These include Europe, North America, and some areas of Australasia. These plants all require therefore a period of cold dormancy, and like the Sarracenia, this can be from Halloween through until Valentine's Day. At this time, some can be kept outside, others in a covered environment such as an unheated greenhouse, where they will be happy to around minus 10 Celsius (14 degrees Fahrenheit). Keep damp at this time. During the winter, the temperate species lose their leaves, so plants ordered at this time will have no obvious growth. In the growing season, stand in rain water and keep in full sun.
