I grow my Sarracenias in New Zealand Sphagnum moss. In the late fall, I put
pot and all in a plastic bag and place them in the butter comparment of
my refrigerator (S. oreophila and flava seedlings). I check them every three
weeks or so and remove them from cold storage in late January. They survive
fine. I do not remove the leaves or remove the substrate from the roots.
