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.

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!"
I hate bugs. Carnivorous plants get me.
Interesting. How/where does it drain?
When the water rises higher then the rubber mat, it drains from the sides into the ground.
