Hi, my Sarracenia Purpurea Heterophylla is having root rot. What can I do to save it?

Uproot and cut off all the rotten parts of the rhizome, then repot. Other than that, I don't think there's much you can do.

I peaked all of the rotting stuff. Can this still be saved?

It's possible, I've grown Sarrs from less, and that's in better shape than many of mine were. Pot it up and find out.

I did it. Here it is. Just have to isolate the sick plant from the others. This was in a Sarracenia Purpurea and sundew bog garden

I just read a post from Mike Wang that heterophylla purps are prone to root rot. You will probably want to keep it separate and manage the water more closely. I just moved my two to the "dry" tray.

After trimming off the dead part of the rhizome, I give the cut end a good spray of BioAdvanced 3-in-1 Insect, Disease & Mite Control. I've found that it does a good job of discouraging the rot from returning.

All we can do is give it our best shots. My sympathies. There will be a memorial service at a later date for friends and family.
