Subject: Sarracenia Dormancy Questions

Hello to all, Can anyone tell me if a temperature in he upper 50's
  F(my winter basement temp.) is sufficient for Sarracenia
  dormancy? I have too many this year to put them all in a
  refrigerator of 39F as I have done in the past. Leaving them
  outside in a Rubbermaid storage shed is another option. Although
  being on the north side of the house and not knowing if this
  winter will be as mild as the others, the shed brings up another
  question. How low can the outdoor temperature go without harming
  the plants, if storing them within the shed, in the plastic pots
  which they were grown? I'd appreciate your thoughts. Thanks.
