Are you worried about them going dormant in the winter?


If so, I know people will store their Sarracenias in the fridge over winter, some totally unpotting, others not.

Not sure if this would work on Cyps, being that they seem much more fragile in cultivation, but it might be worth researching

I had posted this link in another thread back in Dec.2009
This article was written in 1999 by the late Dr. Wilford Neptune who cultivated Cyps in pots and placed them in the refrigerator at 35-40 degrees F for a minimum of three months.

No I can do that no problem, just need to find the space. My wife is very accommodating. Already winter Jack in the pulpits in the fridge.
I was wondering if I had sufficient lighting indoors to get them happy.

Out of curiosity, where do you purchase most of your jacks? I'm looking to do some landscaping this summer, and one of the areas I was hoping to plant is located in shade. So I was thinking of planting a few jacks there

I bought them from ebay vendors. Most I bought as seed.
