    Sarracenia 'Judith Hindle' brown tops.

    I have a S. 'Judith Hindle' that has about 14 pitchers. about 5 of them are not all green. the tips of some a brown like tree leaves during fall. i don't understand the reason for this. i got this plant from Lowes and it was fairly small so it couldn't have been that old. could it be that i have it too close to the light? or could it be from lack of real sunlight? i give it plenty of water and about a few hours worth of sunlight once a week. should i up the sunlight days?

    Yes you should give it a full day of sunlight 14/7 and what kind of water are you using?

    If you got it at Lowe's then it should have came in a little cube if so then slowly take the top off like quarter of the way off for a day then half off for one day then fully off for one day then leave it in the cube with the lid off for one day then the next day take it out of the cube.

    distilled water. so i will keep it in my windowsill from now on. i got it from lowes in december. its been doing good since then but those brown tips worry me a bit. i spray it with water and keep the bottom filled 2-3 inches. i have kept it in the tube because it makes a good water basin. should i take it out of the tube? i tooke my flytrap out so i could cut the flower and allow the leafs to grow out a bit.

    Unless you are in the Southern Hemisphere your Sarracenia should still be dormant or just beginning their growth season. If the plants are properly synchronized with the seasons chances are the pitchers you have are from last years growing season. Sarracenia 'Judith Hindle' has some Sarracenia purpurea in the mix and as such the many of the previous years pitchers will not start to turn brown until the beginning of the new growing season.

    i live in new york. my pitchers dont look like Sarracenia purpurea. they all look the same. the kind of brown they are turning is making the leaves brittle like tree leaves in the fall. when you go to hold one they just crumble. its only the very tips that are like this so once i switch its light schedual it should go back to normal or at least not spread

    It's a Sarracenia right? If so then you should put that outside and give it as much sun as posibly.
