Gardeners' Notes:

Positive SallieKr On May 23, 2012, SallieKr from Cherry Valley, IL (Zone 5a) wrote:

The tag on my plant said it was hardy in zones 7 to 10. Aquatic plants are expensive, so I decided to try bringing it inside for the winter. I set the pot in a plastic shoebox which I kept full of water, and placed it in a south window next to my Rosemary plant. Both made it through the winter, and now the Pitcher Plant is producing new shoots after I placed it back at the edge of my pond.
