    Those rhizomes look very, very healthy and you can tell the leaves had nice coloring. Whoever grew those before took very good care of them.

    I agree with Fred P and would say the most important indicator of age is whether or not the plant is of flowering maturity.

    I classify Sarrs by maturity, not direct rhizome size/length/dividsion:

    -Seedling: Sarr that is still producing immature "seedling" pitchers. Usually under 3 years old. Has not divided.

    -Small: Sarr that is no longer producing "seedling" pitchers. The "mature" pitchers are still significantly smaller than those of the large version of the same plant. Usually has not divided.

    -Medium: Sarr that is either right under or right over the flowering borderline. Pitchers are a tad bit smaller than than those of the large version of the same plant. May have divided already.

    -Large: A Sarr that has flowered more than once. Produced pitchers are as large as they will get for that plant's species/variety. Has divided already.

    Mine is like Joosa's:

    -Seedling: A Sarr that only has immature and small pitchers under the three or four year mark.

    -Small: Usually one or two growth points that is 4 or 5 years old. Nowhere near flowering size.

    -Medium: A Sarr that will flower the year of trading/giving or has already flowered.

    -Large: I check the rhizome before trading off. Usually gnarled and very large and has flowered multiple times. 2-4 growth points, usually.

    Although I’ve neglected it (it’s been sitting in a tub of water for the last 5 weeks), how would you all feel about having ordered a “large” and receiving this rhizome in the mail? Even though the rhizome is big, the crowns are on the small side and it probably wouldn’t flower this year. Thoughts?
