Not sure where else to put this
So I've come to find myself in a bit of a pickle. As I am most likely moving in late December/early January. Now normally that wouldn't be an issue, but in the last few years I have lived here not only have I taken up betta fish as hobby, but also growing and caring for carnivorous plants known as Nepethes or Tropical Pitcher plants. Now i won't be facing the main issue here until a few months from now, but because My hobbies include things that like warm tropical climates, moving in the heart of winter probably isnt the best thing for them but I don't have many other options. Especially when you take into consideration that i live in Colorado, and that it snowed a little bit yesterday already. I don't want to put my plants or my fish in the way of harm transporting them with these cold temperatures. I think that since I am currently cycling my tank, I could keep supplementing the ammonia to it until after I move(still gotta figure out how to move everything from it without crashing the cycle). But I'm not sure what to do with my plants, one of them is a four foot tall monstrosity of a Nep that I got last year that was already growing slowly as it was almost dead when I got it. That's not the case now as it has taken off and is growing exceptionally well. But as I said a moment ago I do not want to harm the plant. So any word from you lovely folks about how I could safely move these things. Do any of you have experience moving with tanks that are up and running or with monstorsities of plants?
Oh and on a side note, I suck at planning, because when i started cycling my tank and most definitely when I took up the carnivorous plant hobby, moving was the last thing on my mind, but now here I am a couple months away from moving and I realized I didnt think things through, silly me.
