    Sarracenia trouble

    Hey everybody,
    I'm having trouble with my sarracenia; my drosera and vft are thriving in the same exact spot and conditions; however, my sarracenia seems to be wilting. Is it in too small of a pot perhaps? Any thoughts that could help me out would be greatly appreciated. Thanks guys

    What conditions are you growing it in? Sarracenia like to have full sun and low-mineral water. They also need to be kept wet.

    I think if minerals in the water were the issue the Drosera would feel it first.
    Judge not lest ye be judged creates a cesspool. Judge others and prepare to be judged by them.
    Just know when to keep the verdict to yourself.

    Yeah we need more info. Where are they growing (part of the country and indoors or outdoors)? How often are they getting watered? How are they getting watered? What's the lighting situation? All that stuff plus what scotty requested would definitely be helpful to know.

    Hey guys, sorry I can only access this via mobile and im having trouble uploading a pic. I utilize distilled-reverse osmosis water wit absolutely no minerals. Im in chicago; however temps have been around 70-85 degrees and it gets about 5-7 hours of direct sunlight a day. It's constantly wet as i utilize a plastic tray method with about an inch of standing water. It's turning brown at the tips of the pitchers and beginning to droop. It's a scarlet belle sarracenia

    Have you checked for pests? Mealybugs can cause some droopiness that looks similar to dehydration in my experience.

    Wilted Sarrs in an otherwise healthy environment always means root rot to me.
