I keep them in my garage in the winter. It's not heated, or insulated, and still gets pretty cold in there, maybe down to 15F when it's -20F outside, but they seem to do ok. I think the key is to keep them out of the wind, which would dessicate them if left outside here. The trickiest part is actually late Feb/March, when the sun gets higher - the garage starts warming up, but it's still too cold outside, so fungus can be a problem then. I've lost many plants over the years, but have had 100% survival the past couple years.
Aaron, I looked at your blog and am envious you can grow carnivorous plants...do you bring them inside in the winter? They grow wild in the bog areas of some of the places I've visited here in the Georgia area. They are also in the flood plain areas at the Atlanta Botanical Gardens in the Children's Area, next to the frog-lillypad and bee areas.
yes it is, which happens to be the host plant for this particular moth.
The plant looks like Queen Anne's Lace also known as wild carrot.
