I think the only risk is if the ground temperature is too high and the ground air circulation in the mulch is low. Then you can get mould. If the mulch is fairly airy and a good insulator it would probably be better to leave it on as there is a predicted frost and snow next week. Maybe just peel a little back to check the plants. If it's pretty cool and there's no sign of mould, I would leave it on until the risk of frost is over.
i think i'm aiming for april 1st. the problem i find is that we get real warm spell in march then some frosting/hard freezing so things would start to grow then get damaged. But your well north of me so not sure how your timing goes. Sib
It was so beautiful today I took my microbogs (big pots) up on the deck. The flavas were pushing up flower stalks (Thanks, Mabudon). The filiformis are nice and bright green and all the VFT's are green and red already (in darkness all winter!) So get your plants out, SPRING is here!

chrisrichard: SCAM ALERT--Don't buy from Pearl River Exotics in Georgia. What they advertise on their website IS NOT WHAT U GET!!! I've learned from my horrible experience+am sharing with everyone, so you don't get ensnared in the same trap of false advertising by them.
