VFT/Pitcher Plant Help
I have a VFT and Sarracenia (I don't know the species, I bought them at a hardware store and didn't record the type) and have been keeping them inside for fear of cats. I ordered some items off of your website (I was very pleased by the way, thank you) and a hanging pot was one of them. I think it may be too late for the fly trap, unfortunately. It looks pretty bad, here's a link to a picture of the pot:
1) What kind of temperatures can they stand? I live in zone 7 (middle of Oklahoma), and it's over 100 degrees outside right now. I moved the pot out in the sun, hanging them on the edge of a west-facing roofed patio, only to find them moved back in the shade by my parents who say that the heat and light would "cook them."
2) When I repotted it, I was alarmed at the fact that I didn't see that many roots. There was a stringy dark thing or two, but that's it. Is the plant a lost cause?
3) If it can survive, what do I need to do to help it transition to the heat outside? I'm aware that most of the leaves will burn when becoming accustomed to the light, is there anything I need to be doing to help it while it grows new ones?
4) If you can't tell from the picture, most of the leaves are very thin, many of the traps are dying or non-functioning, and there's not that red tint they're supposed to have in their traps. This can all be fixed with proper lighting, right?
5) Last one, I promise. The sarracenia and VFT can be put into hibernation together, right?
