In case you need help with all the sarracenia I have some tips coming from the owner of happy sarracenia. 1. Peat or sphagnum, no miracle grow or added minerals
2. Distilled, rain, or reverse osmosis, I use the tray method and all my plants are happy.
3. Full sun OUTDOORS(Unless its a sarracenia purpurea (the coolest) or a sarracenia psitticina which both of them you can grow under lights and provide a dormancy in a garage or sunroom (UNHEATED).
4. Dormancy from Late November-April if you are in an area where it goes below 20°F then overwinter them indoors in a garage or sunroom or research the fridge method( a less popular and fun method)
5. Feed them with either live insects or one osmocote pellet(green bottle one) into the pitchers once a month or mist with maxsea fertilizer at a quarter strength, if some are indoors, which is an option with lights along as you supply a dormancy. My Purpurea is happy indoors with lights and pitchering like crazy.
6. For the purpurea and psitticina, you can grow them indoors since they are smaller than the rest of the sarracenia and (in my opinion the coolest(no offense other sarrs) ).
7. Use plastic pots ONLY, Terra cotta will basically bring naughty minerals into the soil and slowly kill your plant with the minerals and salts from the Terra cotta pot.
I hope that this info that helped me will help you with your sarracenia if you needed it. By the way, make sure that it never goes above 110°F. I hope you enjoy the forum!
