Just out of curiosity, where was it you were calling from? Although
Nashville hardly puts me in the "parka-wearing zone", we do get
chilly enough temps to induce natural dormancy in the plants that
need it. The ones I bring inside, on the other hand, seem to do
pretty well with the little they get. A fair amount of insects move
inside for the winter around here, along with mice, squirrels, etc...
The only exception is my P. moranensis. It caught one small gnat
sometime around Thanksgiving, and nothing else. It's done fine.
