Hello, I want to relocate to Wilmington. I want to go there because Carnivorous Plants are a big part of my life. That is where he Venus Flytrap originates and I want to live there. They need a dormant period so it needs to be cold in the winter. But... I Don't like Wilmington's winter temperatures. It goes below 32F too much. Is there a city/town in NC that the winter temps are 30F-40F? Or what US states are like that?
I also want to live in Sebastopol, CA. But they are supposed to have a big earthquake. I really like their winter temperatures (30F-45F). I'm worried about the Venus Flytraps that I would grow, freezing and dieing.
But CA is pretty expensive to live. Also Florida is too humid, and texas is too Arid.

So basically, what I'm asking is what city or town in NC gets 30F-40F in the winter? And Is CA worth it (They hve the perfect climate)? And what cities/states get those temperatures.

Thanks.

You think it's too cold here? I felt like most of the time the temperature was in the 40's-50's last winter.

This has got to be a joke - or somebody's been smoking those pet Venus Fly Trap plants.

They aren't pets, they are just fun plants to grow. So does anyone know any climates like that?

Anywhere in coastal caroilina which will be the mildest of NC considering it is along the coast.
I dont know where you feel temperature is below 32 and if its its only for a day or week.

The average low for December is 38 average high 59
January average low is 35 average high 56
Febuary average low 38 average high 59

Venus flip traps grow well at Carolina State Park .

Flytraps do better when people care for them than they do in the wild. I've been growing them for 4+ years. How cheap is it to live in Wilmington?

Maybe you should look for a job and then move wherever you find one...

The only place in NC that rarely goes below 32 is probably Bald Head Island and maybe Hatteras. Because of the ocean influence. But they're both pretty remote.

Hatteras is recorded to be warmer than Wimington. But I don't like Islands...
Money or Jobs aren't the problem.
So is it cheap? How are the people? How's the quality of life?
