    That's a good point. There are several threads on acidifying the soil with teas to enhance red coloration - you should browse the Sarracenia and bog garden forums for them. A lot of people use peat tea, while some growers like Bugweed say the tannins from black tea are where it's at. I'm sure you can find a lot of discussion on this if you do a search.

    Here's some new leaves on my S. purpurea taken about two weeks ago. The largest leaf pictured here opened fully about 4-5 days ago and is starting to redden up - beginning with red veining on the inside of the hood. The red leaves behind it are left over old leaves. I trimmed off three or four old leaves. The biggest new leaf is at least 1/3rd larger the the largest old leaf (removed). Strange how the leaves start out red, then lighten to green then darken to red again.

    Grand Hotel... always the same. People come, people go. Nothing ever happens.

    In May my plants are all pale and gradually colour up over the next 6 weeks.

    In March, you'll need to be along way south to get much colouration going.

    My Purpurea has stop growing new leaves, why did it stop only after 2? The second one is still growing but, no new ones have started yet. http://img140.imageshack.us/my.php?i...ture077rc2.jpg The rip is from my brother filling it with water with a medicine dropper.

    It's only been 9 days since your last pitcher. I don't have any at all and I live in Georgia and you live in Massachusetts so relax, take it easy and wait

    I dunno if I've said this to you before, but put it outside as soon as is practical.

    It would go dorment agian if it was put outside. It is 70 in or house so I beleive that is why it started to grow in the first place. Just wondering, how old does the division look?
