It is that time of the year when Sarracenias looks so ratty! Just got to be patient as they go into their dormancy stage.

My Sarracenias also suffered extreme dryness while we were away last August, but two are bouncing back slowly and now into dormancy, just got to wait patiently!

This one is doing half and half, got new growth and some on dormant stage, also survived nasty feasting from grasshoppers:

I just have to hope this Sarracenia psittacina is just dormant and still alive.....if not well..too bad...so sad...I do not think I will try it again, seems to be the most finicky one amongst these three Sarracenias I have.

A very bad casualty of summer, Sarrancenia purpurea, but I saw one new little pitcher as it seems to recover then the cold temps came...fingers crossed, hope it is really just dormant:

How is everyone's Sarracenia doing?

Don't give up on psittacina yet, especially if the crowns are still solid. Purpurea is starting to come around. Hurray!

My 'swamp' got its winter covering of 5 layers of burlap this last weekend. Our highs are now in the high 30's to low 40's and lows in the low 20's. I don't worry about them freezing but the freeze/thaw thing is deadly for them.

Yes, am not giving up yet! Daisy, your high is our low, and hopefully we do not get into the 20's, but we do skirt around those low temps in January.

And with that you got the snow. How many inches have you gotten so far?

About one inch that quickly melted. We don't get a lot of snow - the winters are dry and cold. Last year at this time, we had about a foot of snow! That was awesome AND unusual.

Only one of my Sarracenias have truly come back from winter...need more warmth now I think, hopefully the other two tries to bounce back soon!

I've uncovered mine now but, so far, not much is happening.

I lost almost all of my Dormant plants....

With the extreme wind and rain, most were scattered all over,


Hey tarev, how did you get such pretty moss in that pot, second photo

Hi Brenden, I think it has always been there and just revived nicely when the winter rains and extended cool period stayed on. I just wish it is Sarracenia psittacina that is alive in that container and not just the moss.

I only have one Sarracenia left showing life and new growth, one better than none Rolling my eyes.
