    A lady went into a grocery store and looked into the turket section. She needed a bigger one for her family, so she asks the stock boy: \"Do these turkeys get any bigger?\"

    The stock boy replied: \"No ma'am, they're dead\"

    My. S. minor "okee giant' just did this as well. The roots are fine. It must just be the plants' look during dormancy. I thought I was loosing the plant but the roots are fine. I am suspecting it is going dormant early. Whatever it wants to do I'm letting it. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    wrong...Sarracenia still require dormancy, regardless of where you live..

    its the same as any other plant..
    if you live in the Amazon rainforest and buy a cactus, you cant expect it to live outside year round!
    if you live in Alaska, you wont have much luck keeping your tropical nepenthes outside in January.
    if you live in Singapore, you cant leave your Sarracenia outside in the warm winter!

    in all 3 exapmles, the "new" climate the plant has been moved to is FAR different than its native climate..so the owner of the plant must artifically create a proper environment..
    nepenthes must be brought inside in Alaska during the winter so they stay warm..
    Sarracenia must be brought inside (fridge) during the winter in Singapore so they stay cold! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]


    any plant must be given its *native* conditions, regardless of where in the world it finds itself..

    wezx, sounds like you will probably have to use the "refrigrator method"..
