S. leucophylla dormancy

Recommended Posts

At the current time of year S. leucopyylla produces its second ( and best) batch of pitchers.

Should the plant still stand in rainwater or should it be treated like most other sarras and be kept

damp but not wet ? I do not want to lose the plant through root rot, but it does seem strange to curtail

its pitcher production, just as it is looking at its best.

I treat all of my Sarracenia the same. I have stopped watering all of them including the leucophylla!

Other people may do differently.

Leucos tend to grow their autumn pitchers mid September until the end of October, so I'd be surprised if you still had some growing.

They should be kept damp, not wet, over winter like all the others. It's too cold for any moisture in the peat to be used up at the moment, even if new pitchers are appearing.
