    I highly doubt its true that the purp "likes" zone 9..
    it doesn't..if you saw zone 3-9 somewhere, its not true..
    Zones 3 to 7 probably, but zones 8 and 9 will be far too warm for the winter.

    the purp wont be happy there, its not compatible with a Nepenthes environment.
    it will need a winter dormancy, or it will eventually die.

    Hi Scot, this is just a fun bog I did. I'm not trying to maximize the plants growing conditions. Most Sarracenia do well in zone 10. Sunbelle and Manny Herrera do very well growing Sarracenia here in South Florida. This is my van full of Sarracenia when I helped a friend move.

    This is a quote from your website. (Which is excellent info By the way.)

    "We know anyone living in zone 8, 9 or 10 is golden as far as outdoor winter dormancy..
    just leave your plants (VFTs and Sarracenia) outdoors 24/7/365 and life is good.
    You dont need to do anything about dormancy! Nature does all the work for you..easy!"
