    Hello,

    I was interested in purchasing a small Sarracenia, perhaps in a few months, later in the summer. I was wondering which plant may be best, for a beginner? I was looking at a few of the smaller Sarracenia flava, from the plant website, California Carnivores.

    I was planning on purchasing it later in the summer, and keep it as an indoor plant, untill next year, an perhaps I could place it outdoors.

    Any further comments would be greatly appreciated!

    Thanks~

    S. purpura ssp purpura is probably the best choice. you can grow it outside the whole year! it needs a colder domancy than other sarrs and Illanois is a perfect place! ask peter through email to see if he has any for sale or trade.
    good luck

    Most Sarracenia do better outside year round, since they love pretty much more light than any other cps. Somewhere where they get light all day long, or most of the day, is good.

    Okay, thanks guys!

    Then, i'll have to get one, next year. I can just put it in my garage, for the dormant season, then.

    Thanks!

    I've had no trouble ordering CPs during their growing season, including specifically from the site you mention. In fact, the bulk of my Sac's are from there; I just ordered one of the collections.

    Also, I checked you profile, and if says you're in Illinois. I'm in southern OH, and I just put all my plants into a plastic tub (to protect from winds) during the winter and left them. Now they're back and sending up new pitchers and flowers like mad.

    I wouldn't worry about ordering during a non-dormant time; my shipments during such times have always been fine.

    Okay, sounds great! What do you mean by a tub? Was it covered? Thanks!

    By the way, are you a Godzilla fan?
