Hi all,

As mentioned, I have some seeds of Australian Drosera (pygmy and
tuberous). The conditions where I live I think are actually pretty
good for them in that in the winter, the sunshine comes directly in
my windows for good amounts of time. On the down side though, my
windowsills become very cold. I don't know the temps exactly, but
no freezing occurs. The temperate species of droseras that I have
seem fine with it, as well as other plants such as D. Adelae, U.
Prealonga, even a hybrid Nep. I obtained, but what temperature
would be too low for these Australians? I know this would be their
season of growth as opposed to the others, which form a winter bud,
or at least slow down their growth.

I'd like to mention that I live in Canada, so when I mean cold, I
mean COLD!
