This will be my first time overwintering a S. purpurea or any Sarracenia at all. I live in central New Mexico where wintertime temps often drop to roughly 15°F and sometimes 10°F (-9° — -12°C) overnight on the coldest days. I'm under the impression that Sarracenia can tolerate that, I'm more concerned with the watering schedule for them. How often should I give them water and is it best to do as a topwatering or bottomwatering over the dormancy period?
As a note for deeper rooting plants such as Sarracenia I often grow them in 16oz Styrofoam cups, if that matters to anyone. Also, I have successfully wintered Dionaea here by keeping the plants right beside the building walls for some overnight heat, should I do the same with Sarracenia?
Thanks in advance,
My grow list
