Haven't posted here on a long time. Well i am now married and have a kid on the way and moved right across the country to the East coast to Nova Scotia. Now i am just curious onto what sarracenia and sundew plant species i can leave outside all year here? I know we have sarrracenia purpurea here and some d.rotundifolia in the wild. Also do all sarracenia species require dormancy?? If purpurea can live here can s flava, rubra, minor and. D capillaris? If so does it matter which forms? eg.
(Can a Florida S.Flava survive a NC winter?) Also what ph should the soil be?
