    I have about 10, 2year seedlings of Pubescens and Kentuckiense that I have potted up and have gone dormant. Pubescens about 4 weeks ago and Kentuckiense just this week with a few outside still green!

    My question is should I bag and put the entire pot into my beer fridge or should I remove the plant from the medium, clean/sanitize and store that way? And if I clean/sanitize before I put them in the fridge what is the best method?

    Right now I have 4 plants of each in 2 separate a 8”x15” plastic containers and a few more of each in 4” pots outside.

    Any advice is appreciated.

    Thank you advance.

    Cyps do not like being repotted. I would put the entire pot into the fridge for the winter of you can,
