    thanx, seedjar but what realy is bothering me that they're in growing period right now. how to force them to asleep? i guess low temperature and short daylight time should help. i know theoreticaly that sarr have to grow leaves without pitches ant that is the sighn it's prepared to sleep. but normaly it would take 2-3 months and my sarr is outside only 2 weeks

    I don't think your plants will be hurt any if you let them skip dormancy this winter. As you think, low temperature and short daylight time should help give them some "rest". I don't think they will have time to get into a deep dormancy before you get colder weather though. I have brought my plants inside to spend the winter by the back door until next spring. They get bright light in the morning and cool temps from the cold air coming off the glass in the doors and seem to be doing fine so far.

    I've done it that way before. I put them in ziplock bags and checked them weekly to make sure they were ok and to add water or remove excess condensation from the ziplock. I stuck the pot and all in the ziplock. Many others bare root their plants and use fungicide. I prefer not too. It minimizes root shock and doesn't waste fungicide on plants that don't need it. Nor do I like the idea of putting something sprayed with chemicals in the fridge with my family's food. You can use small trash bags for plants that won't fit easily into a ziplock.

    ya my first year overwintering i lost all my sarracenias as i left them outside in a 4 tier greenhouse thinking itl keep them warm well heating in the day freeze at night x 100= 100% death and fungus overtake. So the next year i left them out by placing them in a location in my yard to protect from wind. i did nothing else and 100% survived u just have to believe there hardy and they really are

    Only some do that. Your S. purpurea won't.
