Hello everyone,

Need help because I almost shat my pants. These guys sit outside, Florida weather. In trays with rainwater. They have sphagnum moss in their pots. They were all green and fine the last time I saw them on Friday. And now they look like this!!! What happened 😭 pls tell me they're just dormant.😭😭😭

Keep them in a lot of water. Since you are in Florida weather, I think they just got a bit fried, because it's too early for dormancy to be occurring. That's a sign to water more. Don't worry - you can't overwater Sarracenias. Hope this helped.

:shock: Ouch! Yep, they definitely dried out and/or baked. If they are outside they need to be in a bigger pot to insulate them some. Keep them really soggy and try slip potting them into something bigger. It is hard to say if the rhizome took a hit from getting dried out or not.
