S. minor

Recommended Posts

Since I have some small issues with the cultivation of S. minor, I was wondering how you guys grom them. I have read a lot of different strategies. Some people grow them drier than other sarracenia's, some people don't.

What is the key to succes for my minors?

Part of the new growth is a little bit deformed. I can not find some sort of mold or other pests on the plant or the soil. Maybe frosts at night later in the growing season?

we get late frosts too but i don't think it is that.sometimes the pitchers can have difficulty escaping the soil they grow in if it has been in the pot for a few years because the surface has become compacted or covered in moss

They are only in the pots since last winter so I don't think that is it. I keep them exactly like all my other sarracenia's.

Not every pitcher will be perfect. Usually slightly wonky looking shoots look pretty much ok when they're fully mature.

I agree with Alexis. They are also the last flowers and pitchers to appear - still not much activity on that front here.

I'll wait to see how they develop the rest of the season.
