Cut back sphagnum moss-allow sarras to grow?

Recommended Posts

Guest Geoff Walthamstow

Hi all,

I have pot of Sarracenias that are doing very well.....last year however the sphagnum moss growing in the pot grew loads and is now very deep. Probably 2 to 3 inches at it’s deepest point. My question is : Does the sarracenia need light on it’s crown to start it growing in spring and will it be ok to push pitchers up through all that moss or should I chop the moss right back for healthy plant growth? There are a few tiny little pitchers that have grown as you can see from the photos but would they be better if the moss was chopped back ?

Apologies if it's a dumb question...I'm kinda new to this.

Any advice appreciated !

Thanks,

Geoff.

Yes they need light in the crown to kick start growth... This is not a dumb question, it's a good question :tu:
