    Hello. I just repotted my sarracenias and cut off all of their leaves. All of their leaves turned brown because of very, very cold weather and I could see some green part at the middle of their 'wound'. Is it dead or alive?
    Thanks.
    Boo!

    It is likely to still be alive, due to having some semblence of greenery.

    It's probably alive and well. It is not uncommon for some sarras pitchers to brown off in a cold spell. In a few weeks you should have new pitchers to take their place. The main growing point should still look firm and very much alive.

    I agree with the other two posts! A picture would probably help, but if you can't get one, then just wait it out. Goo'luck!

    I'm growing my sarracenia indoors in my house. Is it ok for me to use the open tray method or should I keep it covered? Also, does it constantly need water?

    Sarracenia are great outdoor plants. They thrive in swampy conditions. As soon as your weather is consistently above freezing, you should consider putting it outside. They love light and swamp and open to the air!
