Maturity of Sarracenia divisions

Recommended Posts

I have several large Sarracenia clumps which I would like to divide in the spring. This made me think - would a division from one of these mature plants be known as a 'mature division', because despite the division being smaller than the original plant, dividing wouldn't have altered it's age?

Or, would a division from a large plant become only a semi-mature division, as it would have to grow back to the size of the plant it was originally split from?

Thanks.

What he said basically. I prefer to thing of small medium and large in terms of how far off flowering they are. Some growers use terms such as FS (flowering size) FS -1 (1 year off flowering) FS-2 (2 years off, etc) although that does depend on growing conditions it's still a good way to gauge size.

To me a mature plant is a plant of flowering size. So each flowering size crown is a mature plant

A problem arises when you separate a small crown/division which happens to have produced a flower (when it was attached) from a much bigger rhizome. The division is not 'of flowering size' but has a flower.
